Purpose: The Garden Faire and Garden Tour
The annual Garden Tour and Faire are our main fundraisers. In 2023 we were able to award more than $3,000 in scholarships to students throughout Yamhill County. In addition, we supported various horticultural and beautification projects including the ongoing maintenance of garden plantings along Historic Third Street, at the McMinnville Post Office and the West End Entry Garden on Highway 99W across from the bowling alley, and our newest project, the Serenity Garden at the Willamette Valley Medical Center.
We will continue to adhere as closely as possible to whatever State of Oregon COVID-19 instructions are still in place on the date of the Tour. We ask for your cooperation in protecting yourselves as well as all of our other garden visitors.

The Garden Fair features more than 60 garden-themed vendors and is open to the public at NO CHARGE. The Faire is from 9 am to 4 pm and is located in Historic Downtown McMinnville (Cowls St. between 1st and 3rd Streets). Our advanced publicity and day-of-event directional signage provide a draw to this popular and fun location. Our vendors include traditional and specialty plant growers. Due to our earlier date of the Sunday before Father’s Day, they will have more plants available for purchase. Other vendors include amazing garden art, wearable art (clothing and jewelry), furniture, art, flowers, and wonderful items for your garden. To keep our event fresh and exciting, we are constantly on the lookout for new and unique vendors to add to the excitement.
