Trinity Episcopal Hosts Garden Mart, Music Festival this Weekend
Trinity Episcopal Church hosts its fourth annual Sprouts & Stouts festival Friday and Saturday (May 11-12) at 4th & Madison in Covington.
The event started as a small garden sale and will have its Garden Mart on Friday. The now two-day festival will raise funds and awareness for six Northern Kentucky outreach agencies.
The organizers aim to make a positive impact on local businesses while fundraising, a news release said. The market will have an array of plants, flowers, and hanging baskets for sale from three local suppliers: Atwood Village Family Farm, Diefenbacher Greenhouses, and Millcreek Gardens.
New this year, guests can enjoy an all-day outdoor music festival on Saturday, with a main stage featuring five local acts: The Sharp Four, The School of Rock, Joe Moore, and The Turkeys, followed by headliners, The Newbees.
The event will also include lots of food and a lineup of craft beer from select local brewers: Braxton, Darkness, Wooden Cask, Rhinegeist, and Platform. While attendees sip, savor, and enjoy the music, there will be art activities for children and vendors with locally-crafted items for sale.
“Trinity has been on the corner of 4th Street and Madison Avenue for 175 years, and for all of this time we have committed ourselves to being part of the Covington community. Sprouts and Stouts serves as one important example of this, that we welcome all of our friends and neighbors to Trinity, not just on Sunday mornings for worship, but to community events outside of the church where we get to know people, develop relationships, and support programs that promote positive change in our neighborhoods,” said Rev. Peter D’Angio.
The Garden Mart will take place on Friday, May 11 from 9-5 p.m. and the music festival will be held Saturday, May 12 from noon-9 p.m. at the corner of Madison and E. 4th.
