Historic Garden Week – April 15-22, 2023

Garden Day in Lynchburg – April 18, 2023

Historic Garden Week

Springtime begins with Historic Garden Week in Virginia when visitors are welcomed to more than 250 of Virginia's most beautiful gardens, homes and historic landmarks during "America's Largest Open House." The Garden Club of Virginia's (GCV) signature 8-day event, Historic Garden Week in Virginia, attracts nearly 30,000 annual visitors from around the nation.

The beginning of Historic Garden Week dates to 1927, when a flower show organized by the Garden Club of Virginia raised an impressive $7,000 to save some of the trees planted by Thomas Jefferson on the lawn at Monticello. Today, tour proceeds primarily fund the restoration of Virginia's historic gardens and provide graduate level research fellowships. In celebration of the GCV 2020 centennial, funds have also been pledged to support Virginia State Parks.

Historic Garden Week provides visitors a unique opportunity to see unforgettable gardens at the peak of Virginia's springtime color, as well as beautiful houses sparkling with over 2,000 flower arrangements created by Garden Club of Virginia members.
