2018 Glencairn BloomFest

Saturday, May 19, 2018 9 AM - 3 PM

We are already planning for another fun-filled Glencairn BloomFest event!
You can look forward to a free, family event with kids activities and vendors offering garden-themed items for sale.  You'll find plants, garden art, pottery, baskets and other items -- many handcrafted -- for sale by area vendors. We also have a variety of activities for children to celebrate “National Kids to Parks Day.” Plus strolling musicians, garden tours and you can grab a hot dog plate for lunch! Join us at the Meadow at Glencairn Garden at 825 Edgemont Avenue.  We'll have one-way traffic around the Garden to help with the flow. The 2018 Vendor Application will be posted here soon!  Give us a call with any questions at 803-329-5620.
