The Bloom & Grow Garden Society of West Orange County will hold its 22th annual Spring Fever in the Garden festival in Downtown Winter Garden. Plant Street will be filled with the quintessential homage to spring and gardening.
We invite you experience it first hand by strolling Plant Street to take in all the festival has to offer.
This festival is set in charming, historic downtown Winter Garden, with its brick lined streets, quaint shops, great restaurants, a splash pad for the kids, the city clock tower, lush hanging flower baskets, a vine covered gazebo area with a fountain offers a calming respite from the festival activity. Be sure to see Flora, our copper Monarch sculpture in Butterfly Park. Come join us for a wonderful ode to spring!
KID ZONE is always the happiest place at the Spring Fever in the Garden festival because we know what kids like! We will have booths and activities geared to children with fun ways to learn about nature and the environment. There will be hands on crafts, face painting and balloon animals made by a stilt walker and more.
There’s free entertainment located in front of city hall. We provide a tent and chairs for you to enjoy area musicians and singers. In previous years, we’ve had jazz bands, dance groups, and a variety of singers performing pop, easy listening, folk music, opera and more.
