Penny McHenry Hydrangea Festival

It’s June, and hydrangeas are busting out all over at the 7th annual Penny McHenry Hydrangea Festival!

Named for the founder of the American Hydrangea Society (AHS), the festival runs from Friday, June 6, to Sunday, June 8, in Douglasville, GA. It’s centered around the Douglas County Courthouse in downtown Douglasville and will spill out into the surrounding streets. They’ll be blocked off for vendors, a flower market, a vintage garden furniture exhibit, a farmer’s market, and more.


The festival kicks off on Friday evening with a Summer Sampler Wine Tasting; tickets are $25. Tours of private gardens, also ticketed at $25 per person, take place on Saturday and Sunday from 9 am to 5 pm.


There’s plenty of free fun too, including a standard flower show, scarecrow display, and in-town gardens to visit with free shuttle service to and from the Courthouse.

Don’t miss this beautiful flower fest!
