Danville Heritage Festival Garden Tours Scheduled for July 2nd

Tour public and private gardens located around Danville as part of this year’s Heritage Festival. People are invited to celebrate the diversity that gardening has to offer – and hopefully appreciate the passion and vision that has gone into creating these unique gardens and take away ideas for their own backyards.

This year, the Danville Heritage Festival Garden Tour has expanded and will be held on Saturday, July 2nd with a rain date of July 3rd; the primary Danville Heritage Festival, however, will be held September 9th – 11th. The date was chosen since it will be closer to the peak flower season, and the gardeners can then enjoy the festivities in September. The garden tours are FREE! Come and enjoy the beauty of nature, enhanced by the hands and minds of the gardeners. Get away from it all and relax!
