Reasons to Celebrate! For Immediate Release - The Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce has announced at least 25 gardens will open for touring to benefit eight local non-profits during the 2020 Cape Cod Hydrangea Festival. Now in its sixth year, the event runs rain or shine for ten days starting on Friday, July 10th in 2020 through Sunday, July 19th. Gardens are open from 10 AM to 4 PM, and the entry fee is $5.00 per person at each garden. Cape Cod residents and visitors will have several opportunities to enjoy beautiful gardens and hydrangea events even in a pandemic year (Those touring gardens will wear masks and practice safe social distancing.) In addition to a good show of flowers on the region’s signature plant, there will be several open gardens and virtual learning events during the festival. Some of the normal festival events have been postponed to 2021, but many outdoor garden visits and virtual events will take place this summer. The Cape Cod Hydrangea Society will present its annual Hydrangea University lectures virtually. The Hydrangea test gardens at Heritage Museums and Gardens will be open during normal museum hours, and other businesses will be holding virtual talks and outdoor tours as well.
