What to Expect at the 2015 Dakota Garden Expo
Once again Townsquare Media is partnering with Plant Perfect and the NDSU Extension Service to bring you the 3rd Annual Dakota Garden Expo April 17 and 18 at the Bismarck Event Center!
Last year, over 6,000 guests attended the expo setting a new record. This year will not disappoint with over 100 vendors, both returning and new booths, along with educational seminars and prizes!
Vendors include home accessories, gourmet food items, gardening, custom décor and much more! Don't forget to bring a soil sample because the USDA - Natural Resources Conservation Service will have equipment on hand to provide electrical conductivity and/or pH measurements! As you can see, there is something for everyone. Click here for the full vendor list.
A large number of seminars will be taking place throughout the two-day event. Click here for a full schedule so you don't miss a thing! A Kids Zone Sandbox will also be full of activities including rain gauge making, face painting and more to keep the little ones happy.
New this year is a Plant Check, basically a coat check for your plants! This way, you can purchase them and pick them up later so you can enjoy the rest of the expo. Curb side delivery will be available for your purchases from the plant check area.
Prizes are bigger and better than ever this year. Register to win the following:
- Primo Oval Junior Kamado Grill w/ Cradle (valued at $1,000).
- Dixon D149P21 Walk-Behind Mower (valued at $300).
- $25 Plant Perfect Gift Cards (given out hourly, must be present to win).
Admission each day is $4 for adults or $2 with the donation of a nonperishable food item. Those 17 and under are free. Parking Lots C and D are free and parking lot B is $5 per space. All vendors should park in lots E and D. Visitors must enter through the new entrance to the Event Center on the northwest side of the building.
