Come celebrate Nature in full bloom on Saturday and Sunday, April 19 and 20 at Central Park in Fernandina Beach. The 5th annual Amelia Island Garden Show will roll out nature's brightest colors with growers and nurseries from around the state. The Garden Show will feature vendors with a full assortment of flowers and plants, fruit trees and palms, orchids, herbs, container gardens, native plants, butterfly-friendly plants, shrubs, garden accessories and more.

A featured attraction is The Raptor Experience, an up-close encounter with live raptors. This is an exceptional opportunity to become aware of Florida's unique, native, and migratory birds of prey. Information will focus on raptors, their natural history, and their importance to us and our environment.

Troop 152 will offer a Tote & Carry service by delivering plants to the pick-up area where they will be loaded into your car when you are through shopping. You are welcome to bring your own wagon.  A Picnic Bench Dining Court will offer fresh pastries and a coffee latte for breakfast and lunch. Ticket prices are $4 for one day and $5 for two days.
