Historic Garden Week Returns April 17-24

Virginia’s Historic Garden Week, sponsored by the Garden Club of Virginia, returns April 17-24, providing guests with an opportunity to experience some of the commonwealth’s most beautiful gardens and landscapes.

This year’s event will include 30 unique tours organized and hosted by 48 member clubs across Virginia including several on the Peninsula and surrounding areas.

On Tuesday, April 20, Williamsburg Garden Club will sponsor a self-guided tour of the gardens of Williamsburg. A walking tour includes six Colonial Williamsburg gardens and two historic sites with gardens plus access to the Custis Square Archaeology Project. Ticket holders will also learn how to incorporate 18th century landscape details and heirloom plants into their own outdoor spaces.

Meanwhile, The Hampton Roads Garden Club and The Huntington Garden Club will host a tour on Wednesday, April 21 in Yorktown. The tour will include stops at local historic landmarks, museums, and a colonial herb garden and will feature a stylish floral display created by members of both garden clubs.

Beyond the Peninsula, tours in Gloucester and Virginia Beach are sold out, while tickets are still available for tours in Suffolk and in Richmond.

Historic Garden Week first began in 1927. Proceeds from the event help fund the restoration and preservation of Virginia’s historic public gardens and other projects. For more information or to purchase tickets, click here.
