Enjoy an afternoon of beer, BBQ, art, gardening, crafts, and museum tours, inspired by a traditional German festival!
Explore your artistic side with succulent-planting classes, guided by Cody Alexander of Urban Jungle, and botanical-drawing classes, led by Eva Colander of Printed Wild. Port City Brewery will tap a cask of their Tartan Ale and Element Shrub will craft non-alcoholic drinks. Garden District will fire up their grill and serve BBQ throughout the afternoon.
Festival guests can plant a perennial in our new Native Plant Butterfly Garden, guided by gardener and artist Kellie Cox, and assisted by Love & Carrots, and play a variety of garden games, including a traditional maypole. The garden’s antique archway, adorned by a floral installation by Sidra Forman will overlook a small market full of products created by local artisans.
The event will feature a mini-exhibition of Kellie Cox's botanical-inspired paintings and guests can explore the museum on a special tour, focusing on the flora & fauna themed decorative elements found throughout the first floor.
