History of the Spring Garden Fair: What began as a small fuchsia sale in 1984 has grown to one of the Northwest's most popular springtime events. Today the vendors number over 200 and is the regions largest kickoff sale for spring planting. This event is planned, organized and hosted by Clackamas County Master Gardeners. Volunteer leaders plan September through May, and an additional 300 Master Gardener volunteers work at the two-day event.

The Spring Garden Fair is a major fund-raiser for the Clackamas Chapter. Proceeds from the event go to fund an endowment providing horticultural scholarships at Clackamas Community College, as well as community grants and programs of Oregon State University and in Clackamas County.
