The 20th annual Camas Plant and Garden Fair continues to grow with more offerings, new vendors, and a variety of activities this Saturday, May 13 in downtown Camas from 9 am to 4 pm.
The event is always held the day before Mother’s Day, and provides a great opportunity to get into Spring.
Shoppers can browse through the products from local nurseries, garden artists, and farms. The annual event is filled with many outdoor gift items, such as trees, plants, garden art, furniture, planters, tools, metal art, hanging baskets, stone art, sculptures, herbs, and more.
While you shop, you can relax at one of many quality downtown Camas eateries and coffee houses.
The fair offers a free potting station where volunteers will help shoppers pot plants in containers purchased. Experts will be on hand to teach about plants and effective gardening techniques.
Visitors are encouraged to look for the Yellow Sun signs at designated booth locations to learn more about attracting birds and butterflies to your garden and other outdoor living spaces.
Children can enjoy the “Find the Ladybug” game, played throughout participating downtown businesses. Players can earn tickets to win a Family Gardening Basket for each ladybug found. The strolling Jugglemania Show will feature a giant rose puppet and themed juggling. The Kids’ Zone—open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.—will include seed planting, making Mother’s Day cards, painting ladybug rocks, a ladybug habitat, a worm bin, seed exploration, and kid-friendly garden planting ideas. Returning this year is the free petting zoo, open all day.
A new addition this year is the Birch Street Wine Garden, which will be open from noon to 4 pm at 311 NE Birch Street.
