I just thought i'd post this. I've tried to go here several years in the past and have never made it. I am going towork real hard to go to the spring planting festival in May it's a few hours away from me, and I think it would be a nice trip, since I love to veggie gardenand often find myself wanting to try new heirloom veggies out.

they offer monthly festivals year round at www.rareseeds.com at the baker creek heirloom seed company

The one in May is where they will have lots of heirloom plants for sale for your veggie garden. Probably lots of seeds too, there is one in January where you can purchase all your seed . I wish I lived closer , i'd be going to the one in January, may and the one in August I think where they have the harvest for sale, lots of unusual heirloom veggies, some plants, and seeds harvested that year. Talk about a huge produce stand!!

The only festival they've posted about on line is the spring planting festival. The rest will probably come later on.

They also sell honey products, gourmet foods, much much more.

Well, I wouldn't be going at all if it weren't but just a 4 hr drive, I'm going to be going in a one day trip, because it doesn't start or open until around l0 and actually closes down for the day around 5:00 I think, that gives me 4 hrs before and 4 hrs after for driving LOL Going to be a very long day. But i'm excited about it, will be a nice day out for me. I'm hoping to bring DH along. He gets into veggie gardening, so it might be something he'll go do with me.

Actually, the hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday and Monday May 3&4
For those unfamiliar with this festival, it is huge with over 100 vendors; several stages featuring country and western, folk, bluegrass and gospel bands; and speakers including Jim Veteto who is the coordinator of the Southern Seed Legacy project.
