FOMT to participate in Garden Faire Extraordinaire New!

Manitowoc's Garden Faire Extraordinaire is carrying on the local garden fair tradition held annually on the second Saturday in June. Washington Park will be filled with selections of locally grown plants of all types - herbs, perennials, annuals, hanging baskets, native plants, vegetable starts and houseplants, air plants, plus garden art and accessories, artisan crafts and local foods.

One of the objectives of the new organizers of the Garden Faire is to give back to the community. This year they are spotlighting Friends of Mariners Trail. The proceeds of the Garden Faire will be donated to FOMT. The Friends will also be fundraising with donated items from attending vendors of the Garden Faire. Please look for their booth identified by balloons to help raise additional proceeds.

The event is free to attend and hours are 9-3 on Saturday, June 9th. Music will be from 11-2. Join the Garden Faire this year with over 60 vendors!
