SMWC members staff a booth to conduct outreach during this one-of-a-kind festival that attracts thousands of visitors to see the world’s largest blossoming plant, a Wistaria.  Now more than 100 years old, the Wistaria is called “One of the Seven Horticultural Wonders of the World.”  Located in the backyard of a private residence that is accessible to the public during the festival, this sprawling plant displays shades of purple and lavender blossoms that emit a pleasant fragrance.  The Wistaria Festival is usually held during the second weekend

Wisteria Thrift Shop's “Brown Bag Sale”

June 6, 2020
This annual sale is known by thrifters and bargain hunters

as the place to be.  This event is truly a win-win, as Wisteria liquidates inventory to raise funds

for scholarships and local charities; shoppers get great deals as they walk away with

as much as they can fit into a large brown grocery bag for a flat price.

Note:  All events are held at Essick House unless otherwise noted.
