About the event


The Festival will take place on Saturday, March 18 and Sunday, March 19.  The Gainesville Garden Club will be in charge of the Children's Corner Tent which is a great fundraiser for GGC.  Last year we made more than $3,300, so we hope everyone will participate!  


CRAFTING.  Please talk to your Circle and let Carol Binello know what exciting, creative craft you'll be doing with the children visiting our tent.  Please let her know as soon as you've decided.

VOLUNTEERS.   Sign-up sheets for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have been distributed for your next circle meeting.  You'll have a couple of meetings (January and February) to get volunteers signed up.  We'll have three work shifts:

1.   9:00am - 11:00am

2.   11:00am - 2:00pm

3.   2:00pm - 5:00pm

You can also sign-up here for your desired shift!

PARKING.  There will be handicap (accessible) parking, but there will no longer be a special parking lot for volunteers.  The Garden has purchased an additional 6 acres near the entrance so make sure you drive all the way up to the front entrance to find parking.  I will be supplying wristbands for free entry to all volunteers.

Gardenia Circle will be working all day (8:30am to 5:00pm) on Friday, March 17.  They're in charge of checking in vendors, traffic in and out of grounds, and driving a golf cart to escort vendors to their assigned space.  


T-SHIRTS.  Atlas Screen Printing and Embroidery has created a design for T-shirts and they will be available for sale to our Club members.  A color price sheet with samples to view can be found on the Shop page.  The color you see of each cut is the only color available.  The turnaround time to get orders in is very short.  All orders are due to Carol Binello no later than February 16.  This means that ordering will not be available at our February meetings... only our January meetings.  Carol Binello will pick up T-shirts on March 9 and make them available to you by placing them at the GGC Clubhouse for you to pick up.
