Go Mad About Plants at Festival of Flowers
Imagine the hustle and bustle of the stock exchange trading floor — but instead of stocks and bonds, they’re trading PLANTS! That’s the scene as enthusiasts of all things green and blooming descend on San Antonio’s Shrine Auditorium for Festival of Flowers.
More fun than frantic, Festival of Flowers features a citywide plant exchange you have to see to believe — possibly the largest in Texas — and it’s celebrating its 20th year.
In addition to the famous plant exchange, the event will feature a floral design challenge, rain barrel demonstrations and even an indoor “gardening mall.” (Be sure to have cash or checks on hand for purchases as some vendors may not accept credit cards.)
The fun happens Saturday, May 27, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at San Antonio Shrine Auditorium, 901 N. Loop 1604 West. Admission is $6 for adults and parking is free.
Hours for the plant exchange are 9 a.m.-3 p.m. After 3 p.m., all of the remaining plants are sold at rock bottom prices.
