New Event Management

There is a new and exciting change for the 2023 Garden Jubilee Festival this year! The Friends of Downtown Hendersonville will be taking over the management of the festival. The Friends of Downtown Hendersonville, who proudly bring well-loved events to downtown such as Rhythm & Brews, the Hendersonville Farmers Market, and the Bearfootin’ Artwalk and Auction are thrilled to host Garden Jubilee and are planning in partnership and with full support of the Henderson County Tourism Development Authority in marketing and promotion of the event as it enters its 31st year. 

Sponsorship

There are still opportunities to be a Garden Jubilee sponsor! With an estimated attendance of 200,000 for this two-day garden extravaganza, it is the perfect opportunity to promote your business or organization. There are several sponsorship levels available and with this being the Friend’s first year managing the event, sponsor benefits are flexible. We are happy to make a sponsorship package that is the most beneficial to you!
