Hyde Park Garden Fair
Chicago's Oldest Community Garden Sale

The Hyde Park Garden Fair will help fulfill your garden needs and plans. If you are dreaming of a lush, beautiful garden, you will find hundreds of flats of annuals in every color and form, 1,000 pots of perennials, large numbers and varieties of beautiful hanging baskets and geraniums, and unique vines, trees, shrubs, and wildflowers.

The 59th Annual Spring Fair will be held Friday and Saturday, May 18 and 19, 2018 (always the weekend after Mother's Day). Hope for great weather!

About the Fair
Spring Fair

The Spring Garden Fair includes 10 plant departments (at right), and supports many special projects (see "About Us"). In early spring, members of the Garden Fair visit nurseries from Wisconsin to Indiana to hand-pick thousands of plants, based on years of gardening experience and emphasizing varieties suitable for city gardens—for example, those that are shade-tolerant or fit into smaller spaces.

Fall Fair

The Fall Bulb and Mum sale is scheduled for mid-September (TBA) from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. We'll have tons of bulbs, direct from Holland, including tulips, hyacinths, crocuses, daffodils, and specialty bulbs (like alliums). Also a wide assortment of mums for fall color, seasonal perennials, and house plants (including air plants and carnivorous plants!).
