Trinity Episcopal’s Sprouts and Stouts Festival returns May 10-11 with plant sale, music and more

Trinity Episcopal Church will bring the community together with a festival to raise funds and awareness for Non-Profits in Covington.

The fifth annual ‘Sprouts and Stouts Festival’ will return Mother’s Day weekend, as a two-day event May 10-11.

‘Sprouts and Stouts’ started as a small garden sale and has steadily grown in attendance.

This year’s event will begin with a Plant Sale on Friday May 10th.

The organizers aim to make a positive impact on local businesses while fundraising. The market will have an array of plants, flowers and hanging baskets for sale from three local suppliers: Atwood Village Family Farm, Diefenbacher Greenhouses, and Millcreek Gardens.

This year, thanks in part to sponsors U.S.Bank Private Wealth Management, Devou Good, and Gatherwright Freeman Tax and Business Attorneys, ‘Sprouts and Stouts’ will present an all-day outdoor Music Festival on Saturday, May 11th.

There will be a main stage featuring 6 local acts: The Boone County High School Jazz Band, The School of Rock Mason, Lauren Mink, The Turkeys, The Newbees and The Tillers.

The event also features a variety of food, especially from local food trucks, Sea Cuisine, Belle’s Smokin’ Barbecue, Graeter’s Ice Cream, Dreamy Whip, and Kona Ice. Accompanying the food, there will be an impressive lineup of craft beer from select local brewers: Braxton, Darkness, and Wooden Cask.

While attendees sip, savor and enjoy the music, there will be art activities for the children and vendors with locally crafted items for sale.

Rev. Peter D’Angio said, “Trinity has been on the corner of 4th Street and Madison Avenue for over 175 years, and for all of this time, we have committed ourselves to being a part of the Covington community. ‘Sprouts and Stouts’ serves as one important example of this – that we welcome all of our friends and neighbors to Trinity, not just on Sunday mornings for worship, but to community events outside of the church where we get to know people, develop relationships and support programs that promote positive change in our neighborhoods.”

The Plant Sale will take place on Friday, May 10th from 9-5 p.m., and the Music Festival will be held Saturday, May 11 from noon-11 p.m. at the corner of Madison and E. 4th in Covington. Events will be held rain or shine and are free to attend.

Proceeds from sales at ‘Sprouts and Stouts’ will benefit Non-Profits in Covington. Recipients in the past have included (but, not limited to) The Welcome House of NKY, Children’s Home of Northern Kentucky, the Emergency Shelter, and Lincoln Grant Scholar House. Trinity donates an average of $40,000 annually to organizations such as these.
