FlowerMart 2017 promises to be bigger and better than past years. We have added an extra hour of nationally renowned blues, jazz and Motown entertainment on both stages, including the sizzling hot performance of Sir Rod, a Rod Stewart impersonator. These acts are added to the entertainment from local groups that include bands, choruses, opera, flamenco dancing, Irish dancing, line dancing, interpretive dance, young harpists, to mention a few.

In addition, a new Craft Beer Garden in the East Park between Charles St. and St. Paul St. will bring the opportunity to sample different beers and munch on some comfort food while sitting in an idyllic setting and listening to the music from the nearby Mrs. Clarisse Mechanic stage.

Boordy Wines will provide a wine bar in the Blossoms Food Hall in front of the William Donald Schaefer stage. In addition, the Blossoms Food Hall vendors will sell many different varieties of delicious foods, including vegetarian dishes such as fried rice, salads, fried yakisoba and egg rolls. Come dine on fried oysters, crab cakes, crab pretzels, hamburgers, hot dogs, roasted corn, pierogies, gyro wraps, and much more. And that's just in the Blossoms Food Hall! Up at the Monument, treat yourself to strudel, kettle corn, soft ice cream, flavored pretzels and several Mother's Day ideas: a box of Parfections gourmet chocolates, Mediterranean Salts or a package of flavored nuts. Our signature treat, lemon peppermint sticks will be available next to the Peabody Institute.

Please plan to enter a contest--the oldest traditional one: the Grand Hat Contest, the popular FlowerMart Dog Show, the second annual Show Off Your Best Preakness® Hat Contest and/or the always fun Happy Feet Dance Contest. The Children's Camp on Saturday from 12 - 5 in the West Park between Charles and Cathedral St. will feature many children's activities, including origami, paper plate faces, games, a book reading, and opera-singing puppets.

A great variety of vendors will be selling a great variety of items and services. Women's accessories of all kinds, handicrafts, candles, essential oil rollerballs, organizers, baskets, footwear, wall art, suncatchers, plates and bowls, custom-designed wine glasses, books, musical wooden frogs, home services and massages are among the many offerings for your shopping pleasure.

And, of course, our flower vendors will add color, delightful scents and excitement to Mt. Vernon Square. Visit Greg's Antiques & Irons and Frivolous Cottage Garden for beautiful garden accessories and Shelly's Blossoms for her always spectacular display, hanging baskets and bouquets. Locust Point will be there for the 18th straight year with hanging baskets and unusual flowers. Harvest History LLC - Seeding the Future will carry heirloom seeds, vegetable and herb plants and garden tools. Buy your bedding flowers at Spring Thyme Nursery and check out the Jones Family Farm truck to see what surprises are in store for you this year. St. Elizabeth School will sell flowers, herb and vegetable plants. Help celebrate the 60th anniversary of the For-Win-Ash Garden Club at its booth where it will sell plants and give flower-related talks.
