Festival Goers check out exhibits

Plan now to attend the upcoming Union County Heritage Festival & Wild Turkey 5K Run & Walk, Saturday, September 21, 2019. The Heritage Festival & 5K are being held in conjunction with the 4-H Expo. All of the activities will be held at the Union County Agriculture Center. The Heritage Festival & 5K are presented by the Extension Master Gardener℠ volunteers of Union County, in partnership with Union County Public Works and Litter Busters of Union County.

The Heritage Festival is a free, fun, family event with the mission of sharing information about our natural and cultural heritage. This year’s theme is “Sweet Union: Still Growing Community.”  There will be educational exhibits aimed at educating children and adults about our culture, plants, insects, wildlife, and natural resources, as well as lots of hands-on activities for the kid’s, live music, a raffle, and of course food!

Exhibitors and vendors will include lawn and garden vendors, food vendors, environmentally friendly businesses, health and fitness groups, local artisans, local farms, educationally focused exhibitors, and non-profit organizations who do good things in our community.

For more information about the Heritage Festival or to register for the Wild Turkey 5K visit the Extension Master Gardener volunteers of Union County website.

Join the Extension Master Gardener volunteers of Union County for their Successful Gardener program Thursday, September 5, at 7 p.m. at the Union County Agriculture Center. The speaker will be Patrick Larkin and his topic will be Piedmont Prairie Gardens.
