Garden Activities

What do superheroes, birds, stories, and gardens all have in common? They all play a part in our continued outdoor garden activities here at Wagnalls Memorial! Summer Reading Club is over for this year, but we are setting up a new outdoor activity each week in our lovely gardens. Come each week and pick up a paper from the tub (just inside the parking lot entrance door) for details and instructions on that week’s activity. Be prepared for a special surprise to take home with you each week as well. These activities will run Monday- Sunday each week through the end of August. September will bring a new schedule, so stay tuned! We will see you in the garden!

 

 

POSTPONE

As the COVID-19 numbers continue to trend upward, we have had to adjust our plans to be in line with the current guidelines from our state health department, with the most recent instruction received that we must postpone Art at the Wagnalls.

As a result, the Art at the Wagnalls two-day event scheduled for August 7-8, 2020 has been cancelled, with a new date set for 2021: May 21 and 22, 2021. The following is a schedule of events for the 2021 festival:

  • Friday May 21, 2021: Artists, Entertainment, Food Trucks and Demo Classes.
  • Saturday May 22, 2021: Artists, Entertainment, Food Trucks and Demo Classes.

With that in mind, we are providing those artists, sponsors and vendors who had reserved space for the 2020 event with two options:

  • The reservation space payment for the 2020 event will be applied to the 2021 event reservation.
  • The reservation space payment for the 2020 event will be fully refunded.

Let us know which of the two options you prefer. If you choose to receive a refund, we will be happy to keep you on our notification list and reach out to you when reservations are open for the 2021 event.

Thank you so much for your commitment to being part of our 2020 event, and we hope that you will join us for the 2021 Art at the Wagnalls.
