Garden Walk & Faire

Please join us again this year on July 14, 2024 for the next annual Elmhurst Garden Walk & Faire, “An Afternoon in the Garden”.  The walk showcases both private and public gardens along with a boutique in Wilder Park.

In 2023 we awarded $12,000 in scholarships to four Illinois residents pursuing a degree in horticulture, landscape design, conservation and environmental studies.  Since 1999, the proceeds have funded a total of $209,000 in scholarships.

Proceeds also benefit many other community projects:

Holiday decorating of Elmhurst Public Library
Maintaining the Herb Garden in Wilder Park
Contributing to horticultural development at Elmhurst University Arboretum
Mentoring York High School Garden Club
Improving and maintaining campus grounds Elmhurst Ray Graham Learning Center
Contributing to Elmhurst Cool Cities Coalition for public environmental programs

Faire Vendors:

Interested in displaying your wares at the Faire? Click here for the Boutique Vendor Response Form. The form is due by June 10. There is a $50.00 fee due with the application. The number of booths in the boutique will be limited in order to assure adequate room for vendors’ displays and traffic between them. Applications for spaces will be filled in the order they are received.

Applications received by June 1st will be listed in the Garden Guide booklet.
Each reservation includes a 10′ x 10′ (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 per space.
We ask that you be ready for customers by 9:30 am. The Faire will end at 4 pm and we request that you plan to stay until then. We will send additional details about two weeks before the event.
