Mum Festival-Cancelled (see notes below)
UPDATE: JULY 27, 2020
The Barberton Parks Commission voted on Thursday, (July 23, 2020), to cancel the 2020 Mum Festival. While this is disappointing for all of us it was the right decision to make. The good news is that we will still have mum gardens and a mum arch for all to enjoy! We will also be selling 3,000 potted mums September 23rd -27th. More information will be forthcoming about the sale.
Please mark your calendar now for the 2021 Mum Festival—September 25 -26, 2021.
Until then, Stay Safe and Well!
