Garden Fair

South Main Street and Clifton Avenue, Rockford IL Saturday, June 4, 2016 9am-6pm Sunday, June 5, 2016 9am-4pm
The annual Garden Fair is getting a little face lift this year. "New and Improved" isn't just for your cereal box anymore! We've eliminated Friday night and extended our Sunday hours. We're also adding more vendors, food options, entertainment and even rearranging things a bit. There will still be all the great vendors you have come to know and love. Plus the addition of more art and antique sellers, making for a really great day of 'fairing'! There's always something for everyone at Garden Fair Weekend, whether it's a basket of begonias, some garden art, handmade soap, a vintage gate, or even a nice cold beer. You'll be glad you ventured out to South Main Street and Clifton Avenue. Garden Fair Weekend is Rockford's biggest and best outdoor marketplace for all kinds of terrific stuff.
