Description

September 29 & 30 – Small Fest!

Aurora, All Weekend
Fest hours: Saturday – 9am-5pm, Sunday – 11am-5pm

Yep, that’s right, it’s our smallest fest yet but we’re doing it in a BIG way. Imaginations will soar as kids shrink in Goldfinch Prairie before being transported to Mini Hollow for a mini adventure. Back at the campground, there will be food, fun, and games while making mini gardens with mini bears and all sorts of mini activities!

For the adults in the group, we'll have small space garden ideas all throughout the garden center for inspiration AND you can sign up for a FREE 15-minute Mini Design Sessions either day. These short sessions are great for small do-it-yourself projects or one small area of your yard. Pre-registration for mini-design sessions required. Call 630-355-4000 to register. Appointments are made on a first call, first serve basis.
