Fall might not be the season that you think about gardens, but that’s all about to change thanks to the 2023 Children’s Garden Festival. The festival, set to be held at Martin Luther King, Jr. Park, near Fillmore and N. Parade, will celebrate the beauty and biodiversity of fall gardens, while ensuring that children have knowledge and insight into the importance of gardening.
The Children’s Garden Festival grew out of the 2022 East Side Garden Walk (ESGW).
“At this festival, children and families can learn about planting bulbs, composting, fall fruits and vegetables, and how they can be good environmental stewards in their own neighborhoods. There will be free food, giveaways, children’s bike repairs, games, music, entertainment, and environmental, horticultural and garden-related educational activities with a goal of bringing neighbors together.” – Gardens Buffalo Niagara
The 2023 Festival is presented by Gardens Buffalo Niagara, and co-presented by the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy. The event is free and open to the public.
