Klehm Arboretum & Botanic Garden has made the difficult decision to postpone our annual Garden Fair, originally scheduled for June 6 and 7, to September 26 and 27.

Save the date for the 2020 Garden Fair Weekend! Shop from over 100 vendors selling flowers, antiques, and art and enjoy live entertainment in our Fountain Garden over a meal from a local food truck! NEW this year are live educational demonstrations at the Fountain Garden Terrace, and don’t forget to cool off in the popular Kid’s Creek and splash pad located in the Nancy Olson Children’s Garden!

Thank you to our sponsor:
