Festival of Flowers
Festival of Flowers The Festival of Flowers is a creative annual fundraiser that helps support UAY’s Teen Parent, Youth Development and Counseling Programs. Festival of Flowers has evolved into more than a flower show and sale. It is a place where amateur gardeners, professional florists and garden designers, youth and businesses have come together to create a visually breathtaking and entertaining event. The afternoon begins with a sneak peek where the community and press can experience the displays in a relaxed manner and vote for their favorite creations. At 5:30 the party begins with wine and hors d’oeuvres, live music and the silent auction. At 7:00 the live auction begins with the sale of celebrity entries and other sought after packages and garden inspired items. In past years these have included garden sculptures by local artists, beer and wine tasting parties hosted in beautiful homes, Hawkeye football packages and golfing vacations.
