Melbourne Main Street presents the 5th Annual Botanical Fest in Downtown Melbourne on Saturday, March 6th in the 1900 Building parking lot at the corner of US1 and New Haven Avenue. The festival will take place from 8:00 am until 4:00 pm.

The Downtown Melbourne Botanical Fest is a FREE family friendly event which attracts visitors from the region and features lavish landscape designs, garden sculptures, flowers and plants, trees and shrubs, unique gifts, garden-themed art, and much more!

“Create a more tranquil, lush and environmentally friendly backyard this spring”, said Kim Agee, Executive Director for Melbourne Main Street. “The Downtown Melbourne Botanical Fest hosts local and out of town vendors with breathtaking and colorful displays that will inspire you to create your own unique backyard oasis.”

In addition, Marine Resources Council (MRC) will be at the Botanical Fest to educate the community on their rain barrel program. Find out more about their mission to deploy hundreds of rain barrels to prevent polluted storm water from entering our lagoon. Melbourne residents receive a $50 rebate.

As guests are encouraged to visit the 50 retail shops, 35 restaurants, 7 galleries and the dozens of other experiences and businesses in the Melbourne Main Street district. You are invited to come back often and experience all Downtown has to offer, or to attend one of our many events throughout the year – Sidewalk Sale in July, Downtown Melbourne Food and Wine Festival in November, or the Holiday Candlelight Shopping.

Parking is available at the many City of Melbourne public parking lots including the free parking garage. The Parking Map can be located on the City website.
