Cary is currently under a Stay-at-Home order in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Most public-facing and staffed facilities are closed to the public, including Town Hall. All playgrounds are closed but greenways, parks, and park restrooms remain open at this time. Some services have been canceled or are limited. Learn more.

This event has been canceled for 2020. Join us for the perennial favorite Friends of Page-Walker Herbfest, held rain or shine on the beautiful grounds of the Page-Walker Arts & History Center. Visitors will have the opportunity to find out how to start their own herb garden while touring the Anne B. Kratzer Educational Garden, including a close-up look at the historic 1850s Page smokehouse.

In addition to touring the garden, festival-goers can stroll through booths selling a wide variety of garden-related items, including home care products, soaps and lotions, edible treats, garden products, and crafts. Plant vendors offer herbs, perennials, native plants, and vegetables. Demonstrators and informational booths will allow visitors to learn more about gardening, healing with herbs, crafts, cooking with herbs, and other interesting topics.

Herbfest is fun for the whole family, with a special herb craft for kids. Returning again this year is the exciting butterfly release.  Yummy baked goods and tasty beverages round out a wonderful day spent in the garden.
