12th Annual Friends of Moody Gardens Herb Fair

Cheers! Salud! L'Chaim! A toast to Texas Wines! It is time to celebrate and learn about the Grape State of Texas. The Friends of Moody Gardens 12th Annual Herb Fair, a free, open-to-the-public event, will be held in the ballroom of the Moody Gardens Hotel, One Hope Blvd., Galveston, on Wednesday, April 24 from 9am - 2pm. More than 40 local vendors selling unique and interesting crafts, art, foods, and other items will be open to the public.

Each year the Friends of Moody Gardens sponsors this event to raise funds for programs to educate local schools students and seniors, teaching them about the oceans and bays, the environment and climate. The organization, formed in 1986, has 140 members who volunteer at a variety of events every year.

A Blessing of the Garden will be held at 10:30am during the Herb Fair in the rooftop garden at the hotel. Poetry and musical entertainment is planned to bless the gardens and plants.

In addition, a noon luncheon (reservations required) in the spacious Moody Gardens ballroom will feature Dr. Justin Scheiner, a Texas A&M viticulture professor who will speak about the wines and grap growing in Texas. He will also lead two wine tastings at Moody Gardens Tuesday, April 23 at 6pm and Wedensday, April 24 at 3pm. Reservations required.
