Spring Garden Fair
Saturday-Sunday, May 5–6, 2018
Clackamas Country Fairgrounds, Canby, OR

It’s time again for the annual Spring Garden Fair, presented by the Clackamas County Master Gardeners. Returning for our 34th year is an all-star lineup of vendors with everything for the gardener. Our vendors offer plants from annuals and perennials to trees and shrubs with everything in between. We have specialty vendors with tools, garden art and compost. And vendors that specialize in all sorts of vegetables and herbs. This two day event also offers plenty of free attractions - making it worth the drive to Canby!

Our award winning 10-Minute University returns with short classes on gardening - Ask a Master Gardener booths in two locations to answer your garden questions - Free pH soil testing in 4-H Hall both days along with displays from local organizations and Free Children’s Activities. The Greater Portland Iris Society is holding their annual Early Show on Sunday, May 6 - they will be on the back porch of the Main Pavilion. The Potting Station has great deals on containers (they will even pot up your purchases before you leave). Each year we invite local student volunteers to work the Plant Taxi’s, towing for tips. The Free Plant Check will hold your purchases – you can even drive by to pick them up in your car on the way out of town! Every year we have our Garden Fair Raffle with dozens of prizes each hour, Silent Auction featuring New Plant Introductions and favorites from local growers, and there is even a Food Court and Coffee Thyme for taking a break - with covered or indoor seating available.

Hours: Saturday: 9:00am–5:00pm; Sunday: 9:00am–4:00pm Admission: $5.00 admission. Under 16 free. Clackamas County Event Center, 694 NE 4th Ave., Canby, Oregon 97013.
