Craft and Plant Festival

I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned this festival already, but I thought those of you looking for new plants or who haven't been to the Duke Gardens yet this would be a great time to go. I'm hoping to be there!

I am wondering if anyone has been to this in the past... are the prices good and or are there unique plants. Duke Gardens is worth supporting. I just have a busy weekend and am trying to decide if it's worth it. And parking there can be hairy during these things. So if you've been in the past let us know your thoughts... worth it? good stuff? good prices? Thanks.

I was there last year, but went not knowing it was taking place. We were just there to visit the gardens, and arrived at around noon. Parking was definitely hairy.

I don't recall actual prices, since we weren't really plant shopping. However, the music sounded fun, and there were lots of people. I did see a vendor selling pitcher plants, which I thought were really cool, and definitely not something you see at your average nursery. We're planning to put in a pond or water feature in the next year or two, and I'd love to try growing some pitcher plants when we do.

My neighbor and I are planning to go Saturday, but will definitely get there early to try to avoid parking issues.
