Mayfest (7)

Celebrate the arrival of spring and Mother's Day at MayFest! With fun kid-friendly activities, enticing drinks and eats, novel items for sale by local vendors, and engrossing evening events, there really is something for everyone at this year's MayFest.

This year you can attend the reception of Jennifer Von Holstein's "One Wilderness" exhibit on Friday, begin Saturday with a yoga class on the circle lawn, and take in the striking imagery and detail of local poet and artist Monique Franklin's ancestral altar exhibition Mama'z Muezzeum on Mother's Day when you purchase a weekend pass.

Some visitor favorites, like Mimosa Meadows, will be featured along with new activities including a photo booth and DIY flower petal crown station.

You can watch, wander, and listen as Rona Yellow Robe plays her spellbinding Native American flute to the trees on Sunday evening for her popular Voice of the Trees concert.

Reservations for docent tours can be made on the ticketing page as an "add-on" to your Mayfest ticket purchase. Tickets for Voice of the Trees are an additional $35 and can be purchased as an add-on to your Mayfest ticket or separately on the concert page. Space for tours and Voice of the Trees is limited, so buy your tickets early if you can! Weekend and Festival passes can be purchased through links at the bottom of this page.

*If you are a Lakewold Gardens Member you will still need to buy tickets to this special event.*


*Open every day Lakewold is open to the public except during private events. Call ahead for more information.*
