Myriad Botanical Gardens in downtown Oklahoma City is the new home of the OKC Garden Fest. The third annual event will be held Saturday, May 13 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Gardens, located at 301 W. Reno Avenue.
“Last year’s festival at the Farmers Public Market was well attended and our goal is to make this the premier garden festival in Oklahoma City,” said Bill Farris, event organizer and owner of Prairie Wind Nursery in Norman. “We are thrilled to host Garden Fest at Myriad Gardens because we will be in one of the most beautiful and inspiring spots in Oklahoma.”
Timed to coincide with Mother’s Day weekend, the festival will feature herbs, perennials, roses, produce, pottery, jewelry, wineries, food products and food trucks. Activities for children will also be offered and there is no charge for attending.
This year will again feature an area with information for those wanting to start a butterfly garden or Monarch Waystation, an intentionally-managed garden that offers food and habitat for the Monarch butterfly population. Several vendors will offer milkweed for Monarchs along with other pollinator friendly plants.
New this year will be educational talks and demonstrations about gardens and pollinators.
