Hydrangea Festival at Heritage Museum and Gardens (Sandwich)

July 10 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

As part of the tenth annual Cape Cod Hydrangea Festival, we celebrate the iconic plant that makes the Cape so stunning. Enjoy fabulous photo opportunities as you stroll through the gardens and be sure not to miss two featured gardens which together make up the most comprehensive collection of hydrangeas in North America. The Cape Cod Hydrangea Society Display Garden boasts a collection of over 155 exceptional cultivars, around 60% of which are legacy varieties no longer in cultivation anywhere else. The North American Hydrangea Test Garden features over 240 of the newest varieties of hydrangeas being vigorously tested and evaluated here, growing alongside companion plants, providing garden design inspiration.
Special daily activities include:
10 am-5 pm daily – take a self-guided tour throughout the gardens to discover more about this signature plant
10 am-5 pm daily – take part in a Hydrangea Hunt family challenge
11-11:30 am on Saturday, July 6 and Wednesday, July 10 – 30-Minute American Sign Language (ASL) Interpreted Hydrangea Guided Tours: Guides share the story of hydrangeas at Heritage and highlight spectacular specimens during this walking tour of both the Display Garden and the Test Garden (tours meet at the Cape Cod Hydrangea Society Display Garden)
11 am-3 pm daily – Art Cart Activities: Capture the beauty of the blooms during hands-on art-making activities
11:30 am-3 pm daily – Hydrangea Discovery Cart: Learn tips for identifying, selecting, and caring for all six types of commonly-grown hydrangeas
