Hydrangea Festival 2024

Join the Floral Fête from July 5th to 14th!

We're seeking green thumbs, floral enthusiasts, and proud gardeners to shine in our upcoming Annual Garden Tours Fundraiser!

Your garden, no matter the style or blooms, is the star we're looking for.


Your garden doesn't have to have hydrangeas or fit a specific mold.

We welcome diverse, from all across the Cape not just West Barnstable, gardens, whether featuring prize-winning blooms, working farms, or local garden/agriculture-related businesses offering tours on their property.


Here's what you can expect:

  • April: We'll touch base to discuss your preferred dates and times for showcasing your garden and ask any follow-up questions we need.
  • Application Process: We manage the paperwork, cover participation fees, and ensure a smooth process.
  • Docent Support: Should you wish, a knowledgeable volunteer will be present during the tours to showcase your garden.

Your participation is not only valued but plays a vital role in making this event a success.

It's community members like you who generously offer their time and space that make our Garden Tours a blooming triumph!

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 will be held every July.

Highlights include 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 many non-profits, including Whelden Library.


There will be a $5 entrance fee per person per garden.
