2018 Flower Show & Spring Marketplace – March 15-17
Day: March 15, 2018 Time: 10:00 AM-06:00 PM
Show Dates: March 15 – 17: Hours: Thursday & Friday – 10am – 6pm / Saturday – 8am – 2pm. Fill up your senses and share in the excitement, creativity and ingenuity of Peter Becker Community family at our Annual Flower Show. This year’s theme Legendary Gardens will explore the folklore of Ireland, the mystique of Atlantis, the heroic Mount Olympus and more. This is two great events in one: A FLOWER SHOW offering a fantastic multi-sensory experience and a SPRING MARKETPLACE – a craft and vendor fair with a variety of local artisans! Feel Spring come alive in you with Flowers. Fun. Shopping. Food and… epoch gardens. Trees, bulbs, and greenhouse grown flowers are being coaxed into bloom early for this event. The Flower Show’s twin event called the SPRING MARKETPLACE runs at the same time just minutes across campus and offers a unique shopping experience along with exhibits of vintage garden bikes and repurposed window & doors. Some of these one of a kind works of art will be available to buy via silent auction. This is an amazing and popular local event.
