A Unique Opportunity Strictly Limited to Gardening-Related Vendors
27th Annual Garden Show and Sale
The time has come once again to ask you to consider being a vendor at Festival des Fleurs. The Show, now in its 27th year, has become the premier show and sale in the Lafayette area. Our show is unique in that all of our vendors sell only plants and other gardening related items.
Festival des Fleurs de Louisiane’s mission is to support the UL Lafayette-Ira Nelson Horticulture Center which is home to numerous plant organizations, as well as, the Lafayette Master Gardener Association. The Horticulture Center is a valuable resource for UL Lafayette in the education of its students and research in horticulture. It is also a valuable resource for the Acadiana community by offering educational opportunities, outreach services and enhancement of horticulture in Acadiana. We strive to create an enjoyable event that provides a powerful venue for plant related sales.
