Garden Fair 2020 Update

Updated 4/30/2020

To our Garden Fair Attendees, Vendors, Presenters and Volunteers, 

I write today to let you know that in light of Illinois Governor Pritzker’s recent extension of the stay-at-home order for our state, Klehm Arboretum & Botanic Garden will be unable to host our widely anticipated annual Garden Fair event schedulefor this upcoming June 6 and 7, 2020. We intend to move the event to our alternate dates of September 26 and 272020 and to transform it into our first-ever Autumn Garden Fair. We hope that at that time as many of you as possible will be able to join us for a celebration of garden plants, informative presentations, garden art, repurposed items and more!

I want to again thank everyone for their understanding and support during this difficult time. I know that everyone is facing different challenges in their lives and businesses right now, and I hope that the prospect of a still-beautiful spring and warm summer, coupled with the anticipation for our new Autumn Garden Fair event, will give everyone something fun and exciting to look forward to here at Klehm Arboretum & Botanic Garden. 

Warm Regards, 


Alexander S. Mills, Executive Director
