Garden Jubilee Festival, Hendersonville

Garden Jubilee, Hendersonville

May 23-24, 2020
Held on Memorial Day Weekend, one of the largest gardening shows in the Southeast covers eight blocks of Main Street in downtown Hendersonville. Even if you don't have a green thumb, you'll enjoy browsing 250+ plant and craft vendors. It's BYOW (bring your own wagon)!

Held 9 AM until 5 PM each day, the Garden Jubilee has been named one of the Southeast Tourism Society’s “Top 20 Events” in May. Local and regional nurseries sell thousands of annuals, perennials, vegetables, herbs and hard-to-find plants.
