The 2021 Fall Flower & Garden Fest will return to an in-person event but will be modified because of the persistently high number of COVID-19 cases.
The fest will be held 9 a.m. to noon daily Oct. 4-8 at the Mississippi State University Truck Crops Branch Experiment Station in Crystal Springs.
Educational sessions, Master Gardener presentations, and walking tours will be offered each day. Attendees also can explore the station’s 3-acre display garden, which includes flowers, vegetables, and herbs.
No vendors, including food vendors, will be present. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own water and other refreshments. A limited amount of bottled water will be available for sale.
Admission and parking are free. Organizers anticipate fewer vehicles, and no shuttle service is available this year. The station is located at 2024 Experiment Station Road.
