This year’s annual event will be held on Saturday, March 14, 2020 from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. at Danville Area Community College.

The doors open at 8 a.m., when the public is welcome to start shopping the vendors and making bids on silent auction items and baskets.

If you wish to listen to the speakers, enjoy lunch prepared by the DACC Culinary Arts School and receive a bag filled with garden goodies, the registration fee is $25.

Your payment by cash, check or credit card reserves your seat for presentations.

Master Gardeners who attend will receive four continuing education hours.

For those who cannot commit to a whole day, the Spring Festival is open to the public from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. at no charge.

All are welcome to come shop the vendors and bid on silent auction items. Please bring cash or checks as credit cards are not accepted for Silent Auction items, Garden Baskets, or by some vendors.
