28th Annual Herb & Garden Fair
March 28 & 29, 2020
Saturday, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM • Sunday, 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM
The grounds of Poplar Grove will be filled with a wonderful selection of locally grown plants of all types – herbs, perennials, annuals, hanging baskets, shrubs, native plants, vegetable starts and houseplants, plus garden art & accessories, herbal & all-natural products, artisan crafts & local foods.
There is a $5.00 admission fee; kids 12 & under are free. Included in your admission price is live music, Kid’s Activities for the little ones, and free classes & nature trail walks (come see what is in bloom!) for young and young-at-heart throughout the two-day event.
Learn from your neighbors and some of the community’s best local historians, herbalists, and basket-makers! Our State magazine will be on site to distribute their special April issue.
There will be Greek food samplings, wraps, seafood, hamburgers, hotdogs, smoothies, and baked goods available for purchase.
For the kids, The Stables at Poplar Grove will be open for tours (closed toes shoes required). The entrance fee is $5.00 a person (young and old) as well as animal Meet & Greets on the back lawn.
Self-guided house tours will be offered at a discounted rate of $7.00, though you are welcome to sit on our porches and visit our Gift Shop and Slavery Exhibit on the lower level of the Manor House for free. The blacksmith shop will also be fired up, so be sure to follow the billowing smoke & peek inside.
There is always something yummy to eat at the Herb & Garden Fair. Several participating vendors at this year’s Fair will also be kicking off our Farmers’ Market Opening Day on Wednesday, April 15, 2020 from 8AM-1PM, so this will not be the only time to introduce yourself.
