Secret Garden

It's no secret that Belle Isle has plants and flowers from one end to the other.  Many people know about the new Oudolf Garden.  Even more are familiar with the Conservatory.  The island also features sculptures, which are hidden in plain site.

Since the start we have felt that the Belle Isle Art Fair is all about taking home the beauty of the island so that you can enjoy it all year long.  That's why we have added our Secret Art Garden element.  Between booth 127 and 131 you will find the not so secret entrance.  Once there you can relax with our Adirondack chairs, see outdoor art in it's natural element and learn from many of the areas outdoor organizations.
