The Annual Wake Forest Herb Festival returns to Festival Park in downtown Wake Forest April 18-19-20 and April 25-26-27. After a long cold winter now is the time to start planning your summer garden and thinking ahead about the veggies and herbs you want to grow this season. The Herbfest is a great local source to help start your garden and it a fun way to spend the afternoon in downtown Wake Forest.
At the festival you will find the largest selection of Non GMO organic herbs, heritage tomatoes, heirloom vegetable plants & local grown perennials for our climate The festival also features live entertainment, beer from local White Street Brewery and gardening educational seminars.
While this is a small town event by “festival” standards, the Herb Fest is recognized as the largest herb and perennial festival east of the Mississippi. There is a ton of free parking along White Street next to the park and the festival provides wagons and carts to load up your plants (and to tote your children). For details about daily festival events you can visit their website here.
