We have decided to change the 2020 Fest to a Virtual Fest.

In light of the COVID-19 cases still increasing in Mississippi, it looks like the best option is to not hold a live event this year. This was a difficult decision and we know that thousands of our regular attendees will be very disappointed.

We will be posting gardening videos and other educational materials on the Fest webpage, so check back later this summer.

Let’s look forward to 2021 being a better, healthier year.

Healthy Living - Healthy Gardening

The 2020 Fall Flower & Garden Fest will be October 16 & 17 at the Truck Crops Experiment Station in Crystal Springs, Mississippi. Crystal Springs is about 25 miles south of Jackson. Hours are from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. both days, and food vendors will have food and drinks available. For more information contact your local Mississippi County Extension office, or call (601) 892-3731.

FOOD - There will be lots to choose from -- rib-eye steak sandwiches, catfish, chicken, pulled pork, hamburgers, corn dogs, and more. This year we'll also be serving breakfast so come early for some great breakfast food! For dessert, there will be cookies, cakes, and all kinds of sweets. The Chautauqua Garden Club will be selling their famous homemade ice cream, and the Copiah County 4-H will serve hot coffee, hot chocolate, and cold drinks all day.
