Monroe County Master Gardener Annual Garden Fair

We look forward to seeing you April 13, 2024 for our biggest event of the year at the Switchyard Park Pavilion in Bloomington, Indiana.

The Garden Fair is free because we want as many people as possible to attend. Helping gardeners and communities learn and grow is one of our primary missions. The money raised through booth rentals, donations, and food sales at the Garden Thyme Cafe, all fund the MCMGA Grant Program which returns  money to community groups on an application basis.

Browse over 35 local vendors  and not-for profits displaying garden related products, services, and crafts. They are passionate about gardening just like you!

Enjoy savory lunch items and tasty home-baked desserts at our Garden Thyme Café. 

Dig into your inner gardener at the Garden Activity Booth where we feature a creative activity you can complete on your own or with the family.

Visit the House Plant Doctor booth and soak up the secrets of happy, healthy houseplants. Stop by the Gardening Everywhere booth to learn about becoming a Master Gardener yourself or the impact  Purdue Extension has on our everyday lives.
