Historic Garden Week

Please join us April 26 – May 3, 2025 for tours throughout Virginia during Historic Garden Week!

For one week next spring, visitors will tour inspired private landscapes, public gardens and historic sites across Virginia, enjoying our beautiful state at the peak of spring. In addition, more than 1,000 world-class floral arrangements created by Garden Club of Virginia members will enhance tour properties. This beloved statewide event will include unique tours organized and hosted by 48 member clubs located from the foothills of the Shenandoah Valley all the way to the beaches of Tidewater

About Us

The inspiration for Historic Garden Week dates to 1929, when a flower show organized by the Garden Club of Virginia raised an impressive $7,000 to save trees planted by Thomas Jefferson on the lawn at Monticello.

The Garden Club of Virginia operates as a nonprofit organization comprised of 48 member clubs and 3,500 volunteers. Proceeds from Historic Garden Week fund the restoration and preservation of Virginia’s historic public gardens and provide graduate level research fellowships.

Historic Garden Week is held annually:
Dates for 2025 are April 26-May 3. Dates for 2026 are April 18-25.
