Painting on Location for Cape Cod Hydrangea Festival July 15
The Guild will participate in the 5th Annual Cape Cod Hydrangea Festival this year by painting on location at several of the gardens in Eastham. The festival will be held the week of July 12-21 and each garden in Eastham will have painters on site Tuesday, July 15. The paintings will be on display and available for purchase at the end of the day at the Eastham Public Library. Be sure to mark your calendar for this event and come see the artists paint their creations live!
The Cape Cod Hydrangea Festival is an annual celebration of the region’s blue, pink, and white signature flowers! This ten day festival’s main attractions are the 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 a variety of local nonprofits.
Gardens are only one part of the festival. Enjoy workshops and lectures presented by leading international horticulturalists, discover promotions at participating nurseries and home centers, take a class to learn proper hydrangea pruning techniques, or even watch a painting demonstration by renowned Cape Cod artists both in-studio and in the gardens themselves.
Garden tours are $5 per person per garden. You can pay cash at each garden on the day of the garden tour.
Each garden is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and only on the days specified. All gardens’ addresses will be announced a week prior to the festival. All garden tours are rain or shine and nonrefundable.
