The Annual Bluegrass Flower and Vegetable Show is an opportunity for gardeners of all ages in Fayette and surrounding counties to learn, compete, see what others are growing successfully in this area, as well as to see how their gardening efforts rate in the competition. Sponsored by the Fayette County Master Gardeners Association (114 members) and the Lexington Council Garden Clubs (6 garden clubs and 120 members), the event is held in conjunction with the Lions Club Bluegrass Fair at Masterson Station Park.
Blue Ribbons are awarded in categories for Youth, Horticulture and Design. There are no fees for entering the Show, but there are lots of rewards. In addition to the coveted Blue Ribbons, there are always free items, some cash prizes, related exhibits and lots of gardening experts.
