26th Annual Herb & Garden Fair

April 7 & 8, 2018

Saturday, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM ♦ Sunday, 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM

The Poplar Grove Herb & Garden Fair is one of our favorite events of the year (can you tell by the exclamation point in the title?). And this year, there is so much being offered for all ages, every level of gardener, and even the craft-maker at heart.


$5 admission opens up the grounds of Poplar Grove to you, full of locally grown plants of every variety, artisan crafts, all-natural products, and some great local foods. Live Music from Mark Herbert of Broccoli Brother Circus and Ann Meadows fills the air as you tour the old plantation. Besides the assortments of wares available, there’s kids activities for your little ones, free classes, and nature trail walks to see all the flowers in bloom.


Tours are available of the stables, with an animal meet-and-greet in the back, and the house hosts discounted self-guided tours. Both days offer a host of classes, from Pencil Basket making for the kids, to learning just how to keep your garden alive (and so much more)


Your $5 ticket fully supports the Poplar Grove non-profit, dedicated to the conservation, education, and preservation of this historical piece of Wilmington. Visit the Herb & Garden Fair website to see a full list of everything available – they packed a lot of fun into 2 days.
