Not just a celebration for the region’s signature bloom, the genus hydrangea, this event encompasses plants of all kinds.

Here is a mini guide to the festival highlights:

Garden Tours

Hydrangea Fest’s main attractions are the daily tours of private gardenseach designed and maintained by the individual homeowners and carrying a unique charm. A variety of local nonprofits benefit from the proceeds of each tour. This year’s festival features 90+ private gardens, from Falmouth to Eastham. Garden tours are $5 per person per garden, and each garden is open from 10 am to 4 pm (on the days specified). Be on the lookout for local Plain Air Artists painting in the gardens.
