There will be garden exhibits, children’s activities and demonstrations designed to enhance your gardening skills. The Currituck Master Gardeners and several other vendors will have plants for sale. Hanging baskets, annuals, herbs, daylilies, and vegetables will be among the many plants that will be available for purchase. Our vendors will offer an extensive array of garden and household items, from garden furniture to garden art, birdfeeders, and much, much more.

The Secret Garden, a special attraction for families, will offer activities for adults and children. Youngsters, and the young at heart, can participate in hands-on projects or browse garden literature. Exciting door prizes will be awarded and raffles will be held. Master Gardener Volunteers will also be available to answer gardening questions.
