ORISKANY, N.Y. — With so many summer events cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it is with great regret that the Cornell Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Volunteers (MGV) of Oneida County announce the cancellation of the 24th Annual Herb & Flower Festival set for June 13, 2020. Thousands of visitors have enjoyed the yearly festival held at the Parker F. Scripture Botanical Gardens at the Farm and Home Center, corner of Judd Rd and Second St. in Oriskany.
Herb & Flower Fest planners have decided that it is more important to protect the health of attendees, vendors and master gardeners. Alternate plans are being formulated for a virtual Festival keynote speaker to be held in July. In June, the MGV will be offering evening ZOOM Gardening classes online. For more details visit our website www.cceoneida.com and follow us on Facebook for dates and times to come.
We look forward to seeing you at the 25th Annual Herb & Flower Festival June 2021. Our Master Gardener Volunteers are eager to share their knowledge of plants and gardening with you and our vendors look forward to serving you.
