Celebrate Spring at Fairchild's Garden Festival

Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden is celebrating the arrival of Spring with an outdoor festival full of delicious food, gardening tips and plant sales. The Spring Garden Festival at Fairchild is Saturday and Sunday, April 9 and 10 from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm each day.

Fairchild horticulturists and local plant vendors have been hard at work growing amazing plant specimens for the 37th Annual Spring Plant Sale. You'll enjoy hundreds of native and exotic plants to pick the ideal ones for your own landscaping projects. Expert-led gardening demos will show guests the best ways to care for new flora, maintain their current plantings and create an edible garden.

Spring wouldn’t be complete without delicious food. Browse vegetables, herbs, handmade food and artisan products from local vendors. Renowned local chefs will lead cooking demos to teach visitors how to make unique spring dishes using seasonal ingredients. A spring beer garden will sample crisp brews perfect for the season.

Enjoy the Spring Garden Tea, part of Fairchild’s Afternoon Tea series, in the Baobab Courtyard each day from 10:30 am to 3:30 pm. Delicious tea blends will be served with scones, savories and sweets for an additional cost.

Special children’s activities will be held throughout the weekend, including hands-on science activities and kid-friendly cooking demos.

Don’t forget to take a walk through the Rainforest to discover the amazing Orchid Odyssey exhibit featuring dozens of orchid varieties in dazzling colors. April is also the last month to see Clyde Butcher’s “Preserving Eden” photography exhibition, on view in the Arts Center until April 30.

Admission is $25 for adults, $18 for seniors 65 and up, $12 for children 6-17, and free for Fairchild members and children 5 and under. Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden is located at 10901 Old Cutler Road.
