Garden Fest, the Northern Shenandoah Valley Master Gardener Association’s annual celebration of plants and gardening will be held from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on June 3, 2017 at Belle Grove Plantation.
The free event is open to the public with free parking. Tours of the Manor House will be conducted for a reduced fee of $5 for those 12 and older and free to those 11 and younger.
Garden Fest is a great family event with raffle prizes, food vendors, live music sheepherding demonstrations, petting zoo, and activities for all ages. A large selection of plants, grown by the Master Gardeners, will be for sale with wagons on hand to transport purchased plants to vehicles. Master Gardeners will be available to answer any plant questions. Throughout the day, visitors may visit garden related demonstrations and displays, look over the wares for the garden and specialty vendors. A free garden tool sharpening service will be offered and Second Hand Rose will again offer great bargain purchases.
