Fairfield’s 11th Garden Expo March 21-22
Now in its 11th year, Fairfield’s colorful, diverse Garden Expo has become a harbinger of spring, featuring more than 75 unique home-and-garden-related exhibitors. This year well-known authors and gardening experts will speak throughout the weekend on topics that appeal to anyone wanting to enhance and beautify their surroundings. Two of the lecturers include Pam Weil and Merrilee Ganim.
As Gay Gasser, The Garden Expo’s Co-Chairperson, notes, “Exhibitors are selected for their uniqueness, quality and appeal. Each year, visitors to the Expo continue to remark how lucky they are to see all these exceptional products right in Fairfield. From homemade gourmet food items, to natural skin products, to vintage garden furniture and live plants, the Expo offers products and décor that appeal to every taste. Items that add structure to gardens such as containers, stone water features, metal and wind sculptures continue to be strong themes in outdoor décor and we are excited to showcase many of these beautiful and functional products.” She adds, “The Garden Expo has products and information to enhance and beautify every home, inside and out.”
The Garden Expo is presented annually by the Garden Expo Committee for the benefit of River-Lab, a program of the Mill River Wetland Committee, a not-for-profit environmental education organization in Fairfield.
