Great Castlegar events are worth planning for

Celebrate the joy of Castlegar area gardening with others on the May long weekend

The Third Annual Castlegar Garden and Nature Fest, Saturday, May 19 (long weekend) compliments the vibrant promise of a new season.

The Castlegar Garden Club and Castlegar Communities in Bloom sponsor this celebration.  The focus is on growing plants and gardens (wild and cultivated), and the natural environment and its inhabitants: insects, mammals, birds etc. This potent mix of energies benefits us all, especially our environment!

Situated on the beautiful Columbia River, this open-air festival celebrates growing with 30-plus vendors selling a large array of plants: berry bushes, herbs, rockery plants, shade plants, vegetable starts, annuals, trees, shrubs, garden art and treasures of all kinds. Free admission.  Come discover something new!

Enhance your awareness on Kootenay-local topics such as hiking clubs, wilderness conservation, wildlife centres, Communities in Bloom, food security, local organic farmer’s organizations and more. These interests will be showcased by nonprofit and educational groups.

Come out on May 19 (10 a.m. to 3 p.m.) for the Castlegar Garden and Nature Fest: share in a day of gardens, plants, nature & farming. Relax by the river and enjoy wonderful local food. Enrich your soul – grow something!
