Call For Gardens ~ Cape Cod Hydrangea Fest 2017

Jan 20, 2017 | Lifestuff

This just in from the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce:

Third Annual Cape Cod Hydrangea Festival
July 7-16, 2017


Cape Cod nonprofits, people with established gardens at their homes, and businesses of all kinds are invited to participate in the third year of this successful festival! The 80+ gardens open during the 2016 festival raised $52,000 for twenty local nonprofits, and dozens of businesses gained new customers using promotions.
Homeowners allow visitors to tour their garden for $5 per person, whichever day(s) they choose during the festival. That garden is connected with a local nonprofit of their choice, and all proceeds from their garden tours benefit that organization. 
Local businesses have offered hydrangea-themed specials, perks and incentives. Host a hydrangea plant sale, offer a discount on floral themed gifts, or even have a workshop on-site. In this way, we create a truly immersive Cape-wide festival!
