Sunset Herb & Garden Festival
May 2 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
The Sunset Garden Club has continued to impress garden enthusiasts with a wide selection of plants and herbs for over twenty years through the Annual Celebration of Herbs & Gardens in Sunset, Louisiana. The event is a great opportunity to step outside with your kids, friends, or even spend an afternoon with Mom and Dad. Vendors specialize in a variety of plants and can answer your questions about growing and cultivation. These include hibiscus, grasses, fruit trees, bromeliads, orchids, ferns, succulents, roses, and a whole lot more. Master Gardeners are also on site and will present informative presentations with time for a Q&A.
Local crafts, handmade yard art, and herbal bath and body products can also be found on the grounds for sale. First-timers should know that plants go fast! The saying is true; the early bird gets the worm. You may also want to bring a wagon to store plants and items while you shop. Also, this celebration isn’t just for adults! The Kid’s Corner features fun jumps, face-painting, and other engaging activities. Kids can also visit the fairy garden or meet some of the bee-keepers or agricultural vendors on site.
The Celebration of Herbs and Gardens is held the first Saturday in May every year in Sunset. The festival grounds are located on Marie Street, across from the old Sunset High School. Parking is available behind the school, on Sibille Street. Traffic will be directed to this location, so just follow the cars!
Funds raised by this annual festival are used for town beautification projects facilitated by the Sunset Garden Club. Admission is $5, but children 6 and under get in for free. Sunday is always the rain date for this event.
