The festival will be entirely outdoors and includes a ceremony and awards. There will also be vendors present and attendees have the chance to adopt a tree. The Norfolk Master Gardeners will also be hosting a plant sale.   

While the rest of the country tends to celebrate Arbor Day in late April, Norfolk celebrates it in October because it is the optimal planting season for native species and trees.
