Wake Forest Herb Festival – April 2014


2014 Wake Forest Herbfest

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.

Wake Forest Herb Festival Returns – April 16-25, 2010


The Annual Herb Festival returns to Festival Park on White Street in downtown Wake Forest for ten days in April running from April 16-through the 25th.  This is perfect timing considering in this area the last frost date is typically April 15th. 

 The festival features low maintenance, organically grown herb plants and organic vegetables along with live entertainment and educational seminars. Last year they even had a beer stand from LoneRider Beer Co. selling refreshments. While this is a small event by “festival” standards, the Herb Fest is recognized as the largest herb and perennial festival East of the Mississippi.  Parking is ample and relatively easy along White Street and the offer red rider wagons and other carts to load up your plants (or tote your children around in). 

Many of the herb plants I purchased last year ranged in price from $3-$4. The Festival does have a website, but it appears to be under construction at this point, but I will plan on posting more information in April about the scheduled musical acts and confirm whether or not you can expect another local brewery to attend the festival.
