The Austin Area Garden Council will hold its 59th annual Garden Festival on April 2 and 3 at the Zilker Botanical Garden. This family-friendly event is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day and offers a one-stop, garden shopping destination that includes a flower show, craft beer garden, food court, live music and more.
The City of Austin will provide information about how to grow sustainable, earth-wise gardens. The Kids’ Corner lets children build a birdhouse, make butterfly wings and masks, enjoy face painting and learn about plants.
Admission is $10 for adults (age 13 and older), $4 for children (age 4 to 12) and free for children under age 4. Parking is $5. Admission is half price on Sunday for those arriving on bikes. Visit zilkergarden.org for details.
