The Festival Center for Flower and Garden returns inside the old Wonders of Life Pavilion on the east side of Future World to the left of Mission: SPACE.
Topiaries for the Fab 5 sit outside.
You’ll only find it open on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 10am to 5pm.
The Hands-On presentations at the Greenhouse Stage may be worth seeking out.
Two presentations are typically scheduled each day – first come, first served.
The Festival Shop on this side has a variety of garden items and some art.
This same stuff was out for the Festival of the Arts.
Intermissions Cafe is available if, like me, you have trouble going 30 minutes without a drink or something to eat.
The Floriography wines look to be on the rare side whereas the Zonin is an $11 bottle.
Is it art?
Horticulture Heritage is located in the back:
The Garden Theater opposite shows a short film presenting some of the techniques described at the exhibit.
Of course, there is no shortage of merchandise:
Those interested in horticulture may find some value in visiting the Festival Center, but it probably isn’t a necessary diversion and even if you really want to visit, it’s only open on the weekends and only offers limited hours. But as temperatures heat up, it does offer a nice air-conditioned break and the various stores offer some interesting merchandise, in addition to the various presentations.
