The Buffalo-style Garden Art Sale is seeking vendors for its ninth annual sale to be held Saturday and Sunday, June 27 & 28.

It will take place on the front lawn of the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens, 2655 South Park Ave., Buffalo. It’s a spectacular setting for this sale that attracts more than 2,000 serious buyers.

Items for sale have to be garden- or nature-themed, or works that can be displayed in a garden setting.

They can be in any medium. Sculpture, planters, metalwork, paintings, lighting, vintage signs, woodwork, architectural remnants, fountains, found art, jewelry, ceramics – anything that relates back to the garden is permissible. (No stand-alone plant material will be allowed.)

2020 marks the second year of the event’s “Starter Seller” program. The cost is only $20 for exhibiting two days, plus a donation of 15 percent of all sales for “newbie” vendors that have never participated in a craft fair previously. Starter Sellers share a table/tent with other newbie vendors. This offer is for your first year only.

The application deadline is Tuesday, April  4. See fees, rules and the application here.

The Buffalo-style Garden Art Sale will include live music, food trucks, plant society booths and a silent auction.

This is an event of Gardens Buffalo Niagara, whose mission is to create more vibrant and beautiful communities through gardens. Other events include Garden Walk Buffalo, America’s largest garden tour; the East Side Garden Walk; 16 more regional garden tours, and the Tours of Open Gardens on Thursdays and Fridays in July.
