Calling all gardeners!
Family Promise of Acadiana will be hosting its 10th annual Southern Garden Festival on Friday, April 15 and Saturday, April 16, at Harold & Sarah Schoeffler Gardens. Even if you don't have the greenest thumb, you're still welcome to join in on a weekend full of outdoor fun!
It all starts Friday from 6 PM to 8 PM, a night of dining and dancing under the stars. Patrons will enjoy a delicious Cajun inspired meal, live music provided by the Nouveau String Band, a silent auction with great items up for bid, and art demonstrations. Click here for reservations. Your ticket will also cover Saturday's admission.
Saturday has a full slate of outdoor activities. Master gardening sessions will be held for those who want to learn more about medicinal plants, container gardening, and butterfly gardens. Local artists and exhibitors will be showcasing their work, ranging from clothing and accessories to woodworking and home decor. For the kids, there will be a maypole dance, a scavenger hunt, and hat weaving! Live music throughout the day will feature local bands and Gospel choirs.
The Saturday festival lasts from 9 AM to 5 PM. Tickets are $10 at the garden gate. All proceeds will benefit the families served by Family Promise of Acadiana, an organization whose mission is to provide shelter to Acadiana families in need.
