The Friends will be hosting their 12th annual Herbfest on Sunday, May 7 from noon to 4:00 p.m. on the lovely grounds of the Page-Walker Arts & History Center in downtown Cary. Guests will have the opportunity to visit 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 release will take place at 2:30 p.m. A special activity for the kids will be available, and our popular Young Friends bake sale featuring delicious treats will take place all day. A local food truck 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.
If you would like to be a vendor at Herbfest, please complete an application. Food/craft vendors are asked to reflect the theme of Herbfest, which is centered on gardening, herbs, native plants, perennials, nature, cooking, and the contribution these pursuits make to a healthy lifestyle.
