9 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days (check out the event webpage for the schedule. There's tons going on.)

This fantastic celebration will feature ever-popular performance art by The Living Garden® where garden characters The Fountain and Vine-to-Vine "come alive." This amazing group from Orlando, Fl., will engage guests as they turn into an animated fountain and grapevines for visitors to interact with and be entertained by. By popular demand, the Rock will return to the garden for the festival. The Living Garden® performance times are included in the schedule of events below.

The festival will also include plant sales by Lauritzen Gardens as well as displays, sales and information from nearly 20 area garden clubs and plant societies.

Hundreds of plants found at Lauritzen Gardens, such as purple hyacinth bean, blue stars, clematis, ornamental sedges and Fleming Hardy Hibiscus™ will also be for sale. This annual event is the only time a wide variety of plants is for sale at Lauritzen Gardens. There will be more than 5,000 plants available for purchase.

Guests can enjoy a walk through the outdoor gardens or they may take a narrated ride on the tram - which now includes a stop at Kenefick Park. The festival will also include live music by the local band Oxygen, children's hands-on activities, festive food and more!
