Wildflower Festival looking for vendors

The third annual Florida Wildflower Festival will be held on Saturday, March 28, 2009 in Downtown DeLand on West Indiana Avenue. Originally having a Volusia County focus, the festival is gradually expanding into a statewide celebration and a forum to encourage wildflower propagation both commercially and residentially. The atmosphere is lively with family-friendly programs, hands-on demonstrations, children's activities, entertainment, an art contest and field trips. The event is free and open to the public. In addition to wildflower education, the festival features vendors who provide information, wildflower-themed products, and arts and crafts related to native plant gardening, gardening for birds, butterflies and wildlife, habitat creation, environmental conservation, recycling and "Green" living. Vendor spaces are $30.00 each. Applications with detailed vendor requirements may be downloaded at our website www.FloridaWildflowerFestival.com or requested by calling or emailing our office at 386-734-0162; jessi@river-of-lakes.com. Products must correspond to the festival theme and categories described above. No food vendors are requested at this time.
