Garden Jubilee This Weekend - Street Closure

Hendersonville’s downtown garden extravaganza!

Garden Jubilee, one of the largest gardening shows in Western North Carolina, will be held Saturday, May 28 and Sunday, May 29 from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm during Memorial Day weekend. More than 200 plant and craft vendors line Main Street, from Sixth Avenue to Caswell Street, transforming the historic downtown area into an seven-block garden wonderland.

The two-day garden & plant extravaganza features local and regional nurseries selling thousands of annuals, perennials, vegetables, herbs and hard-to-find plants. Crafters will offer distinctive garden art, and there will be handmade lawn furniture, jewelry, garden tools, planters, wind chimes, birdhouses, soaps and pottery. Visitors can also learn the latest techniques and tips from gardening experts located throughout the festival.

This year’s Garden Jubilee will again include Garden Talks from regional gardening experts who will host their free clinics at the Visitor Center. The clinic topics are all encompassing, ranging from planting to composing, and everything in between! Make sure to bring a pen and paper to take notes and come prepared to ask questions. These free Garden Talks will be sponsored by the Henderson County Community Foundation.
