Every year our Spring Garden Festival has a theme. Our 2017 theme is Florida Friendly Landscaping. Florida Friendly Landscaping means using the right plant in the right place, using low maintenance plants in an environmentally sustainable way. This can be utilized, by example, using xeric plants or drip irrigation.
This is Gainesville’s premier horticultural event. The Spring Garden Festival features about 175 booths offering plants, landscape displays, garden accessories, arts and crafts, educational exhibits and, of course, foods. Also featured are a children’s activities area, live entertainment and live auctions. Parking is free and two off-site parking areas are serviced by shuttle buses. Please no pets at this event.
