‘Spring into Summer’ at annual event set for June 15-16 along Center Street

While Tuesday might’ve been the first day of spring, the Lewiston Garden Club is busy preparing to “Spring into Summer” at its 2024 Lewiston GardenFest on June 15-16 along Center Street. Lewiston GardenFest is now accepting applications from both vendors and residents interested in sharing their own gardens as part of the annual event.

“Lewiston GardenFest brings together gardeners of varying skill levels and visitors alike to share ideas and special finds for your outdoor space,” chair Mary Ann Yates said. “This annual event not only highlights our community’s love of gardening, it’s also a major fundraiser for Lewiston Garden Club, with proceeds going right back into local beautification efforts and youth scholarships.”

Businesses and vendors who sell items related to gardening, horticulture and the outdoors, including nurseries, landscapers, garden artists and others, are encouraged to apply. The application fee varies from $150 to $275 based on the size of the vendor display.

Village and Town of Lewiston residents who are interested in showcasing their own gardens are encouraged to be part of Lewiston GardenFest’s open gardens. Festival attendees can view the participating gardens when the “Open Garden” signs are in place between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. during the event weekend.

Vendors and open garden homeowners are encouraged to apply by May 1 to ensure inclusion in the printed event brochure.

A press release stated, “Participation is important for a successful GardenFest 2024, so organizers will make every effort to accommodate those applications submitted by May 15. For more information or to download an application, visit lewistongardenfest.com.”

Lewiston GardenFest is free to attend. In addition to the garden-related vendors and open gardens to explore, the event also includes a variety of speakers and master gardeners on hand to answer questions throughout the weekend, garden-themed craft activities for children, and a container garden contest open to the public. Proceeds from Lewiston GardenFest go toward beautification efforts and scholarships for local youth. For more information, visit lewistongardenfest.com.
