Spring Fever in the Garden 2024

The Bloom & Grow Garden Society invites you to join us for the 22nd Annual “Spring Fever in the Garden” festival, on Saturday, April 6, 2024 from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. and Sunday, April 7th, from 10 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. in historic downtown Winter Garden. Additional information may be found on our website:  www.springfeverinthegarden.org 

 

Experience the unique charm of Spring Fever, a garden show featuring large and small plant vendors selling an array of plants.  Our event also hosts vendors with an extensive range of nature, wildlife, garden décor and other gardening related products. All products being exhibited must be high-quality garden, nature, or wildlife related items. Last year's Spring Fever festival saw an estimated 2-day attendance of over 50,000 visitors.

While Spring Fever is an excellent selling platform for vendors, its also a huge draw bringing people to the downtown festival area with a variety of exciting activities. From the Chalk Art Contest and the engaging Kidzone, brimming with endless entertainment for children, to the eclectic performances in front of city hall, the festival offers something for everyone. 

Please carefully read the detailed vendor requirements noted below.  All applications will be reviewed by our committee, and upon acceptance, vendors will receive an acknowledgment letter with additional instructions.  The final decision regarding vendor acceptance rests with the Spring Fever in the Garden committee. 

The festival stands as the cornerstone of Bloom and Grow’s fundraising efforts.  The proceeds go to supporting our higher education scholarships and other well-screened local planting and educational initiatives.  Requests for a refund of booth fees due to hardship will be at the discretion of the Bloom & Grow Garden Society.

Don’t delay.
