Historic Downtown Leesburg will once again be in full bloom as lush landscapes and gorgeous gardens fill the streets. On April 20th and 21st, over 150 vendors will be on display, featuring landscape designs, gardening supplies, outdoor living items, plants, flowers, herbs and so much more! Stroll through the streets and take in the sights and sounds of springtime. Whether gathering ideas for your new outdoor patio, stocking up on gardening supplies, or searching for a perfect gift for the avid gardener in your life, this event has something for everyone! The event runs from 10am to 6pm on Saturday and 10am to 5pm on Sunday.
For a taste of Loudoun County’s agricultural bounty, visit the newly expanded Wine Garden located on Town Green. This new tasting area will feature some of Loudoun County’s best wineries and breweries. Take home a commemorative glass and bottle of your favorite vino to enjoy after the festival concludes.
Another addition to the festival is the expansion to Cornwall Street. Added to the festival layout in 2012, picturesque West Cornwall Street’s beautiful gardens, historic church and mature landscaping combine to make it the new “star street” of the festival. Home to 25 additional vendors as well as the popular children’s entertainment area, Cornwall is sure to be a happening street.
As always, a huge variety of food, music, children’s entertainment and crafts will be on hand for this two-day event. Hourly entertainment on the Children’s Stage will keep youngsters enthralled while moving and grooving. Both days will be filled with interactive, live entertainment just for our youngsters. The fun continues with crafts, face painting, and other activities. The new location of the children’s area on Cornwall Street is sure to be one of the most popular spots of the festival.
Enjoy the sounds of local and regional bands on our Main Stage, located at the Loudoun County Courthouse. From relaxing reggae tunes to the classic rock favorites, the Main Stage is the perfect place to take in the awesome atmosphere of this festival of flowers and fun!
