Garden Jubilee Nurseries & Orchards Tour
May 23, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until May 25, 2020
Garden Jubilee, a fixture on Hendersonville’s Main Street for a quarter century, moves to the countryside this year to avoid large crowds gathering downtown.
The 2020 version, renamed Garden Jubilee Nurseries & Orchards Tour, takes place over four days, Friday, May 22, through Monday, May 25.
In lieu of a street festival, people will venture out to more than 15 nurseries and orchards across Henderson County. The modifications to Garden Jubilee follow federal- and state-mandated guidelines for cleaning, social distancing and limiting crowd sizes.
A few crafts and food vendors that normally participate on Main Street will set up at various locations with proper distancing between vendors.
Garden centers and nurseries countywide will sell annuals, perennials, shrubbery, herbs, trees, vegetables and hard-to-find plants. Orchards offer produce, jams, jellies, honey, cider and baked goods.
