The popular Garden Fair will return for a second year From Friday through Sunday, June 19-21, 2009. Visitors will delight in a wide variety of high-quality merchandise from more than three dozen vendors in the Gardens Marketplace (see below for vendor list), renowned speakers each evening, container display gardens, a flower show and competition with entries from children and amateur and professional adult designers, live entertainment, and more. Free education programs are sponsored by Plainview Farm, offering fine perennials in Yarmouth, Maine.
The Garden Fair, which takes its inspiration from the finest garden shows, is free with regular Gardens admission. Members are always admitted to the Gardens with no fee. There are, however, fees for the three evening lectures, which require reservations. Featured speakers are Roger Swain, Michael Dirr, and Aurelia C. Scott. See the calendar for each day of Garden Fair to learn more and purchase tickets to these much-anticipated presentations.
Please join us on Friday, June 19, for the opening celebration for the Lerner Garden of the Five Senses. The festivities will continue throughout the Garden Fair weekend, as well.
