Cape Cod Hydrangea Festival

Cape Cod Hydrangea Festival - A Summer Garden Celebration

Fifth Annual Cape Cod Hydrangea Festival: July 12-21, 2019 

The Cape Cod Hydrangea Festival is an annual celebration of the region's blue, pink, and white signature flowers and everything gardens on Cape Cod! This ten day festival's main attractions are the daily tours of private gardens, each designed and maintained by the individual homeowners and carrying a unique charm. You are sure to enjoy such eclectic spaces, not to mention the good feeling of supporting a variety of local nonprofits. 

Gardens are only one part of the festival. Enjoy workshops and lectures presented by leading international horticulturalists, discover promotions at participating nurseries and home centers, take a class to learn proper hydrangea pruning techniques, or even watch a painting demonstration by renowned Cape Cod artists both in-studio and in the gardens themselves. 

Garden tours are $5 per person per garden. You can pay cash at each garden on the day of the garden tour.
Each garden is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and only on the days specified. All garden tours are rain or shine and nonrefundable. *** = Different prices apply
