This is Gainesville's premier horticultural event. The Spring Garden Festival features about 125 booths offering plants, landscape displays, garden accessories, arts and crafts, educational exhibits and, of course, foods. Also featured are live entertainment and live auctions. The children's area is included with the admission price and includes potting up a plant to take home, a photo opportunity, a bean bag toss, and many arts and crafts.
A $2 discount is given to members of Kanapaha. Admission is only good for one day and can not be used for both days. Pets are not allowed at these festivals.
