 GreenFest

A festival dedicated to gardening 
and environmental conservation,GreenFest is an educational nature festival designed to give the Tampa Bay community an opportunity to learn more about the care and cultivation of indigenous plants and flowers. This annual event is held at Plant Park on the historical campus of the University of Tampa.

The Friends of Plant Park, a non-profit volunteer organization, initiated GreenFest in 1997. The proceeds from GreenFest have allowed the restoration and additional enhancement of the historical garden, located in the heart of downtown Tampa.
