Looking for an exciting way to spend St. Patrick’s Day with your family? Come out for Jefferson’s Spring Foliage Fest — Saturday, March 17 at Jefferson’s City Clubhouse on Old Swimming Pool Road. The festival opens to the public at 10:00 am, rain or shine, with tree and plant sales, live Irish and folk music, arts and crafts and food. The event concludes at 4:00 pm.
Foliage Fest is an annual event organized by the Jefferson Heritage Tree Council, and was created with the goal of selling locally grown trees at a great price so that they may be planted locally, too, to maintain the community’s healthy, vital tree canopy.
“We are looking forward to more than 40 vendors at Spring Foliage Fest on Saturday,” said Susan Russell, city arborist with the Jefferson Heritage Tree Council and event coordinator. “We’ve seen this event evolve every year with more visitors, more trees, shrubs and plants for sale along with handicrafts, and more volunteers and partner organization from the community taking part.”
About Spring Foliage Fest
This event is in its 8th year and offers residents the opportunity to purchase trees, shrubs and plants directly from the growers where they can get tips on various species, site selection, planting, pruning. Garden Expert and TV-Radio Host, Walter Reeves, will be onsite for several hours to answer your individual questions in person.
