The Cape Cod Hydrangea Festival celebrates the region's blue, pink and white signature flowers for the third year.

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

Garden tours are $5 per person per garden. Each garden is open from 10 AM to 4 PM on the days specified. All garden tours are rain or shine and nonrefundable.
