It's official! Due to the predicted steady rain for Saturday, we are moving the Trillium Garden at the Wakefield Estate to its rain date —  Sunday, May 20, 1:00pm-5:00pm.

Everything else remains the same - enjoy a fine selection of draft beers from Trillium Brewing Company, food trucks, live music, activities for children, farm animals, garden games and more - all surrounded by the newly-accredited arboretum and gardens of the Wakefield Estate.

We look forward to welcoming you on Sunday!

See you then.
