North central Ohioans are in for a treat this weekend as the Ohio Fig Festival unfolds at the Gorman Nature Center in Mansfield. The event promises a delightful afternoon filled with education, gardening, and, of course, the star of the show, figs. Whether you’re a seasoned horticulturist or someone who just loves to sample different fruit flavors, this festival is the place to be.

Cultivating Curiosity

The Fig Festival is not just about tasting; it’s a learning experience. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in free seminars such as practical advice on “River Pruning for an Earlier Fruit Set” to the subtleties of “Notching to Fill in Empty Areas of Your Tree.” Gardeners will also find valuable information on “Rooting Fig Cuttings” and the variety of flavors these unique fruits offer.

Flavorful Conversations

One highlight of the festival will be the discussions on the different flavor profiles of figs. Connoisseurs and newbies alike will discover answers to tantalizing questions like “What figs can I grow in Ohio anyway?” and the ever-present debate between growing figs in containers versus planting them directly in the ground.

The community aspect of the festival cannot be understated. An earlier festival held this month in Chagrin Falls brought enthusiasts together, and Mansfield’s iteration is expected to foster further connections among Ohio’s fig lovers.
