The event promises lots of family fun, including arts and crafts, bulb and bake sale, garden tours, a bounce house for kids and local artisans such as jewelry makers, woodworkers, watercolor artists, textile weavers and more.
Food will be available for sale, including Greek sliders, homemade hummus, hot dogs, chips, soft drinks, peach bread, homemade jams, pies, cakes and breads.
