The 15th Annual Art & Garden Festival will take place on Wednesday, June 5th from 10 AM - 3 PM at the Andersen Enrichment Center & Memorial Rose Garden , 120 Ezra Rust in Saginaw. Admission is free and the festival presents a rare and lush opportunity to celebrate the bountiful seasonal joys of gardening in the bucolic setting and cauldron of blossoming beauty of the Andersen Rose Garden grounds.

The Art & Garden Festival is an all-day art and gardening event that draws visitors from throughout the state and features an art fair, gardening demonstrations, family activities, art and garden vendors, a silent auction, Savoy Bar & Grill sandwich and pasta salad lunch, along with sumptuous homemade strawberry shortcake.

Three garden experts will speak on a variety of topics presenting an excellent opportunity for patrons to properly prepare their green thumbs when planning and preparing their summer gardens. Sweets and treats including donuts, cookies, frozen cider drinks, chocolate, candy and other bakery items will be offered by area vendors; and Art & Garden Festival vendors will sell plants and original art including painted glassware, pottery, native Michigan perennials and ferns, several varieties of rose bushes, and many other items for home and garden. You can also visit with the Women’s National Farm & Garden Club of Saginaw, The Hosta Society, and the Andersen’s own Rosarian experts.

A silent auction will be held featuring plants, art, home and garden accessories, gift certificates and much more, donated by vendors and local businesses.  All proceeds will benefit the care and maintenance of the Lucille E.  Andersen Memorial Rose Garden.

This year’s festival will be one of the first events kicking off the annual Saginaw Celebrates  Summer programming, presented by Hemlock Semiconductor. The summer long collaboration celebrates arts, nature and the humanities with events for the entire family to enjoy.
