The 2023 Spring Festival of Flowers kicks off March 31 at the shared campus of the UF/IFAS West Florida Research and Education Center (WFREC) and Pensacola State College in Milton. The weekend-long event draws visitors from near and far with plant nursery vendors, a UF student club plant sale, arts and crafts, food and more. The campus is open and accessible to all.
While entry is free to the public, the vendor fees directly benefit students throughout the year by funding scholarships, field trips and other needs.
