Event Information

We're so lucky the annual gnome migration visits the Smith Children's Garden! Starting February 8, come look for these secret friends of nature - you never gnome where they'll pop up. To celebrate their return, we'll don gnome hats, build gnome homes, and discover more about gnomes and their magical friends.

To celebrate the gnomes’ return, families can take part in a number of activities in the Smith Children’s Garden from 10:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. including:

  • Build Gnome Shelters – Learn about habitats and then help create gnome-size shelters out of natural materials.
  • Make a Gnome Hat – Show your gnome solidarity with gnomes and their mission to help nature by making and wearing your own tall, pointy gnome hat.
  • Search for Gnomes – Gnomes have taken up residence all over the Smith Children’s Garden and you can search high and low for the garden-helpers as they rest up.
  • Harpist Kim Adamson will play from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

*If you see a gnome you like on Gnome Day, be sure to come back for the Gnome Silent Auction at the 61st Annual Flower Show, March 29, 2014 at Naples Botanical Garden. All of the gnomes are looking for a good home and garden to call their very own.
