The Woodbury Community Garden will host its inaugural Spring Fest on Saturday to help raise money for the garden and a local food pantry.

The garden donates fresh organic vegetables grown in its plots to the pantry and its park space is open to the public. 

Community-building is a key component of the festival, says Amelie Harris-McGeehan, director of the Woodbury Community Garden.  

“This event is really about having fun and bringing people of all ages together,” she stated.

One of the highlights of the festival is the live music which will be performed all day, from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., including Irish folk music, a chorale group, acoustic singer/guitarist as well as musicians playing ukulele, keyboards and more.

There will be plenty of family-friendly activities, from face painting to outdoor games like a scavenger hunt and corn hole toss.  Food and craft vendors will also be on hand.

Admission and parking (at the YMCA, 235 E. Red Bank Ave.) are free. Handicapped parking is available closer to the festival.  

Leashed pets are welcome.

Saturday, May 14, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (rain date Sunday, May 15) – E. Red Bank Ave., Woodbury, NJ.
