The Container Contest is judged by the public during the two-day event, and the People's Choice awards will be presented, Sunday at 4 pm. The terrific prizes are donated by local business and garden centers. Join us and show us your creativity.
You are invited to participate in this contest by bringing your special garden in a planter, a crock, a tub, or any funky container that appeals to you. Each participant that enters a container garden in the contest will be entered in a drawing for two Whirlpool Jet Boat Tickets.

David O'Donnell from Eastern Monarch Butterfly Farm has been raising Monarch Butterflies since 1999 in Clarence, NY. Now, together with his wife Alexis, they raise and release 1500 or more Eastern Monarch Butterflies in the Western New York region each year. Noticing the decline in beneficial pollinators, natural habitat, and the overall degradation of our natural environment they began setting up a stand at the Clarence Hollow Farmers market throughout the summer where they continue today. At the market on Saturdays, and through numerous presentations during the year throughout W.N.Y., they provide education as well as milkweed plants, the only host plant for the Monarch Butterfly. Their passion for nature is truly a labor of love, both working full time jobs, they spend most of their free time at their second full time job, restoring the Monarch Butterfly population.
