We are getting ready to entertain you this coming weekend with the 18th Annual Dundee Spring Expo on Saturday April 14th and Sunday April 15th. It will be two days filled with many activities and information for all. The expo is a free event that invites the public into our Plymouth facility to interact with our Friendly Experts and representatives of the companies that supply products to us. Saturday you can also attend free educational seminars. At Sunday’s Garden Party you design and plant your own custom hanging baskets or planters for a minimal fee. We keep your creation and grow it for you so you can pick it up when it’s ready to go outside.
This year we have some new and exciting things happening. We are bringing in students from the Hennepin Technical College Culinary Arts program to cook up some interesting treats. We have also forged a new partnership with The Cookie Cart – Cookies with a Cause. The Cookie Cart is a Minneapolis based group that supports local area kids with work experience and real life education. It is a great group and we encourage you to check them out.
For a complete list and schedule of Expo weekend events, to sign up for the Garden Party, and find other contests and information, please visit the Plymouth Events and Specials page of the Dundee website.
This 18th annual event was never dreamt of when two army buddies started Dundee in 1946. Currently headquartered in Plymouth, MN we have lived through many changes over the years since our start up in Minneapolis. During this time we have opened in Hutchinson, suffered two major fires, increased our services, and have consolidated ownership to the Theis family. (More to come on services we offer, or check out the Dundee website.)
So welcome to the Dundee Spring Expo. We hope to see you all here on Saturday and Sunday. Let us know if there is something special that you would like to see from us in the upcoming planting season.
