This year we have 5 Elmhurst homeowners and a Public Community Garden who will open their gardens for all to appreciate and enjoy. Each garden has its own personality and style and ranges in size from grand to modest. The passion that these homeowners bring to their gardens is evident throughout the landscapes.

Additionally, the Faire in Wilder Park will feature vendors with unique garden accessories and one-of-a-kind pieces that you can transplant into your own garden. A large selection of perennials will also be for sale.

Scholarship and Community:

The majority of our proceeds will benefit the Mildred Hartney College Scholarship Fund. A variety of community projects in horticulture, education and conservation will benefit too. We welcome donations of any amount with donors being recognized in the Garden Walk Guidebook.

On the day of the walk, the Elmhurst Garden Club sponsors a Faire Boutique in Wilder Park. The Faire opens at 10:00 am to closes at 4:00 pm.

Wilder Park is an award winning and popular destination in itself and the Boutique is well known for featuring  vendors with very special home and garden items. The Boutique Admission is free and open to the public.


Any vendor wishing to participate in the Faire, please contact us through the contact section of this website and we will reply as soon as possible. Please add the attached form and prominently add the deadline is June 13.

The number of booths in the boutique will be limited in order to assure adequate room for vendors’ displays and traffic between them. We urge you to make your plans to join us as soon as possible. Applications for spaces will be filled in the order in which they are received until the limit is reached.

If you would like to participate, please print out form and return with the $50.00 donation. Applications received by June 8 will be listed in the Garden Guide booklet.

Each reservation includes a 10′ x 12′ (approximately) space. Vendors must supply their own tables, chairs, and canopies, tent or tarps as desired.  A vendor may reserve adjacent booth space(s) in which to display his/her own merchandise for an additional $30. each.

To take advantage of the early morning traffic, the Faire Boutique will open at 10 a.m. We ask that you be ready for customers by 9:30. The Faire will end at 4 p.m. and we request that you plan to stay until then. We will send additional details about two weeks before the event.

We welcome your comments and questions. Please contact through the contact page on this web site.
