Matt Turino and Claire Johnson will be performing LIVE music for your enjoyment. Child admission (all guests under 21) is $10 and includes entry to the event and appetizers. 

MENU ANNOUNCEMENT - Hendrick House Catering will be providing delicious food for Blooms or Bust this year. The menu is below and it sounds delicious!

Proceeds from the evening will benefit the summer programming of The Land Connection and the Champaign Farmers Market, which kicks off its fourth season on May 14. While our programming is generally funded by grants and sponsorships, it is donations from the community that allows us, as an organization, to continue to operate at a sustainable level and benefit the local, regional, and statewide communities with our various programs. We hope you will join us and support local farmers and the local food system (while enjoying great local beer and appetizers of course).

Purchase your tickets today!
