8th annual event set for June 22-23 in Village of Lewiston
Longer days mean spring sunshine and warm summer days not far behind, bringing thoughts of gardening and landscaping projects. The Lewiston GardenFest, presented by the Lewiston Garden Club, is now accepting vendor applications for its eighth annual event, to be held on Saturday, June 22, and Sunday, June 23, along Center Street in Lewiston.
Businesses and vendors who sell items related to gardening, horticulture and the outdoors, including nurseries, landscapers, garden artists, builders and others that enhance beauty in the garden, are encouraged to apply.
"Expert gardeners and those with a novice green thumb come from across Niagara County, Western New York and Southern Ontario to gain ideas for beautifying their outdoor spaces at the Lewiston GardenFest," said Sharon Low, vendor chair and president of the Lewiston Garden Club. "Over the past several years, we've welcomed vendors from across the country, and encourage anyone who sells garden or outdoor-related items to apply for our 2013 event."
Vendors who are interested in participating are encouraged to call Low at 716-297-5925 or visit www.lewistongardenfest.com by May 1 for an application. The application fee varies from $125 to $225 based on the size of the vendor display.
In addition to shopping opportunities, the Lewiston GardenFest also features open gardens of local Lewiston residents, speakers, master gardeners and representatives from floral societies to answer questions.
