July 27, 2020

Dear garden friend,

Unfortunately, with the current Covid-19 concerns and mandates, our Gardeners Day Out event for August would not be the full experience and event that was originally planned.With that and the health of our attendees in mind, the OAGCexecutive committee has decided to cancel the August 21-22, 2020 Gardeners Day Out and reschedule the event for next year 2021. Full refund of all registrations is forthcoming.

Right now there is a mask mandate anywhere within Lakeside,inside and outside except private property. The Gladiolus Show for Saturday and Sunday is still planned but no guarantee. The gardens are beautiful at Lakeside, full of bloom according to our coordinator there, Emily Messino. She has offered the discounted hotel and discounted gate fees to anyone that would still want to come to Lakeside during the original dates of this year’s event, August 20-22. Contact Emily Messino, Lakeside Chautauqua, Manager of Conference and Event Planning at (419) 798-4461 Ext. 279 or emailconference@lakesideohio.com


Gate fees per person will be –

One day pass =  

Thurs – Fri. $10 includes auto,

(Good either Fri. – Sat. or Sat. – Sun.):  $15 includes auto,


Two-day pass = (Fri. – Sun.):  $25 includes auto,

(*All Passes are good until 7pm of the last day stated).


OAGC will be refunding the entire registration fee to each registrant by post mail. Hotel reservations already confirmedneed to be canceled by you personally. There will be no penalty for cancellation of your OAGC event room reservationat Lakeside Hotel or Fountain Inn.

We are wishing your gardens are full of color and vigor. Stay at home has given us extra time to get close to nature and care for everything in it!
