Lake County’s 7th Annual Landscape & Garden Fair, a free, botanical-themed festival, will be hosted at Discovery Gardens on March 24 and March 25. The gardens are located at 1951 Woodlea Road.
The festival attracts thousands of guests to hear expert speakers present on a variety of topics, including butterflies, native plants and Japanese gardening. The family-friendly event provides an opportunity to meet with and purchase goods from local merchants that specialize in landscaping, gardening, fruit trees, irrigation, horticulture, fertilizer and more. Some notable programs this year include “Colorful Landscaping with Annuals and Perennials,” “Spring Vegetable Gardening,” and “Favorite Botanical Garden Perennials.”
Additional family-friendly activities include the Children’s Passport, with stops at multiple gardens, the Maze Scavenger Hunt and special butterfly release.
Discovery Gardens is nestled on over four acres behind the Lake County Extension Center and features 24 themed gardens, including a string of lush courtyards and five specially designed children’s gardens.
The fair will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday.
