Friday October 14 - Sunday October 16
Rootstock Plant & Garden Festival

Formerly known as Boktoberfest this year's plant sale is renamed Rootstock Plant and Garden Festival. It's a plant sale, outdoor lifestyle and homegrown gardening celebration for the whole family. This even will span from Friday, October 14 - Sunday October 16 and showcase Florida's best plant and garden vendors from around the state. We're returning to our roots and this festival will focus on the plant sale, gardening, sharing the outdoor lifestyle, main stage educational sessions/demos mixed with Americana music in our new "vineyard" style picnic area with more artisan food vendors with craft beer and wine, family activities in our new Children's Garden, Wild Garden, Outdoor Kitchen and Edible Garden tours and demonstrations, along with the crowd favorites of live carillon music and tree climbing. We have also invested in the development of new parking areas and increased traffic control staffing to provide all visitors the opportunity to park inside the Gardens or have a better satellite parking experience.
