First Parish Gets Ready for its Annual Plant and Craft Fair on May 20

Submitted by The First Parish in Bedford

The First Parish’s 67th annual Plant and Craft Fair is returning to the Common from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 20.

The pots are nearly all filled with heritage perennials as well as seedlings for the fair. There will be May Apple, Solomon Seal, Trout Lilly, Variegated Hosta, Day Lilies, Irises, Blue Globe Thistle, veggies, various annuals, herbs, Salsa Gardens, hanging baskets, and more. There will also be knowledgeable people available for advice about plants or gardens, as well as local crafters and artists. 

Children will enjoy the day as well with Chip-In Farm sharing farm animals to pet and touch. Crafts and other children’s activities will also be available.

In addition, Jersey Mikes and other food vendors will be there.

Note: Only cash, credit cards, and checks will be accepted for purchases at the fair. 

Proceeds from the plant and craft sale will support the work of The First Parish in Bedford, Unitarian Universalist. In addition to other programs, First Parish supports local initiatives including Bedford Community Table and the weekly Food Bank; Bedford Embraces Diversity; the Annual Tenacity Challenge at Bedford High School; and the Bedford Family Connection.

Bedford TV has graciously produced a public service announcement and will be at the Fair. See the announcement at

There is still room for more vendors at the fair. The deadline to sign up is Saturday, May 13.
