Don’t miss Market Day, Cylburn Arboretum’s plant sale and festival, Friday, May 6th from 4:30-7:30 (preview party) and Saturday, May 7th from 8:00 a.m – 2:00 p.m. The Preview Party costs $20 for members and $25 for non-members. Enjoy free parking, wine and beer, music and food trucks on Friday. Saturday’s Market Day is free and it is a great time to load up on plants for the season (purchase plants on Friday night, too!). Park on the grounds for $10, park on the street, or take a free shuttle from the KIPP school.
A variety of vendors will sell their wares at Market Day. The Cylburn Arboretum Association has a booth with plants that its gardeners chose, as well as a Trails Booth with native plants. The greenhouse sells a variety of plants — it is the only time all year when it does — and the money from the sales help produce plants for the city’s public spaces. Expect a huge selection of coleus as well as hanging baskets, scented geraniums, and more exotic plants. The Waldorf School student will dance the Maypole dance Saturday, too. There will be food trucks at this event as well.
