The Friends will be hosting their 10th annual Herbfest on Saturday, May 4, on the lovely grounds of the Page-Walker Arts & History Center in downtown Cary. Guests will have the opportunity to stroll through booths selling herbs, native plants and perennials in addition to craft booths where local artisans will sell items related to gardening and nature.
Our must-see butterfly releases will take place at 11:30AM and 2:30PM, and our silent auction featuring beautiful herbs and garden-related items will be featured once
again this year. A special activity for the kids will be available, and our popular Young Friends bake sale featuring delicious treats will take place. Local food trucks will have food available for sale.
Festival-goers can tour the Anne B. Kratzer Educational Garden, including a close-up look at the historic 1850’s Page smokehouse. Guests can also learn about the Pollinator Garden at the Page-Walker, a National Wildlife Federation Certified Wildlife Habitat that features wild plants.
