The City of Weatherford Parks, Recreation and Special Events Department are hard at work organizing the fifth annual Weatherford Blooms Home and Garden Festival scheduled for Saturday, April 25.
The festival begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 3 p.m. in the heart of Downtown Weatherford. As the largest home and garden festival in Parker County, the event will include more than 80 home and garden vendors with attractions set-up throughout the four quadrants around the Courthouse Square.
Those who attend this exciting event will find everything from home remodeling products and services, designer goods and décor to landscape tools and equipment. In addition to the home and garden vendors, several local nurseries will be on-site with seasonal plants and flowers. Patrons will find a variety of food vendors, local talent and a children’s area located near the entertainment tent. Weatherford Blooms offers attractions for all ages with a fascinating display of classic and antique automobiles. The downtown shops and restaurants are open for the public to enjoy as well during the event.
In addition to the vendors and entertainment, the festival offers free educational sessions provided by the Parker County Master Gardeners. At both the festival grounds and Chandor Gardens, the Master Gardeners will share information and advice about keeping your lawn beautiful during seasons of drought. “As we enter the fifth year for Weatherford Blooms, planning has already begun and we are excited to collaborate with various gardening organizations and water conservation groups to help educate the public on how to maintain a garden in time of drought,” states Special Events Coordinator Michael Howard.
The Weatherford Blooms Home and Garden Festival is free to the public. For more information about the event, or to become a vendor, contact Special Events Coordinator Michael Howard at (817) 598-4034 or .
