STARKVILLE -- The Starkville Area Arts Council will present the fifth annual Everything Garden Expo on March 22 and 23.
The event will be held at the Mississippi Horse Park and takes place from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. both days. The general admission price is $5, and children under 6 years old are admitted free.
In order to attract more people to the event, Ali Jones, Everything Garden Expo chair, said, "For the fifth anniversary of the EGE, the Steering Committee decided to move the event to a Friday and Saturday instead of Saturday and Sunday. We took the advice from our vendors, speakers and customers."
The Everything Garden Expo has much to offer to people of all ages and levels of gardening. Along with many garden vendors, there will be all types of gardening information booths and noted speakers hosting seminars each day. Educational exhibits and children's programs are also part of the many activities.
The Starkville Area Arts Council (SAAC) is proud to bring this expo to Starkville and appreciates the support of the Greater Starkville Development Partnership, the National Endowment for the Arts and the Mississippi Arts Commission.
Additional information about the SAAC can be found at starkvillearts.org. Sponsorships, program ad space and volunteer opportunities are still available. For more information, contact the SAAC office at 662-324-3080.
