Members and volunteers of Austin Area Garden Center are so sad to report that we won't be able to host Zilker Garden Festival this year. Increasing expenses have made it too expensive for our organization. We will host several smaller fundraising events during the year instead, including the Starlight Social on Thursday, April 12. More information to come!
Thank you for your support of the festival, and we hope to see you all in the garden soon!
