St. Josef’s Winery in Canby will celebrate the 30th annual Red Lips & Tulips Founders Day Festival in April. The weekend will include tastings of reserve wines, Gypsy jazz and special European foods.

The 17th annual Gardenpalooza takes place at Fir Point Farms in Aurora the first weekend in April, with more than 45 vendors bringing plants, tools and garden art to help kick-start your spring planning.

Oregon Ag Fest at the Oregon State Fairgrounds in Salem happens April 27-28 and will feature more than 100 booths, including many with garden and landscape plants.
