Garden Faire

May 7 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


As spring comes into bloom, Garden Faire kicks off the Fort Hunter season.  Explore the craft show, purchase some plants, have a scrumptious lunch and learn a Victorian dance.

New this year – a seed swap! Bring store-bought seeds or homegrown seeds marked with plant name, if it is a hybrid and date.

Participate in a Maypole dance and a croquet demonstration, view Ikebana and Bonsai exhibits, as well as The Paxtang Art Association’s show and sale. Farm Show milkshakes are back by poplar demand!

Fort Hunter Mansion will be open for abbreviated tours at a discount price of $5, reservations are required.   Click here for Mansion tour tickets.
