Fredericksburg, VA Garden Day
Tuesday, April 25, 2017
Garden week is always such a beautiful experience wherever the destination is in Virginia. This year the historic town of Fredericksburg is the ideal place to visit during this special time. Visitors will walk from the 18th century to the 21st century as they tour six homes and three additional gardens in the Kenmore Valley neighborhood of Fredericksburg. In addition to visiting the homes and gardens, there will be the Plein Air artist group of Fredericksburg painting that day and they will give away a painting to one lucky guest. The Transportation Committee has arranged a bus drop off and pick up area on the route to help with those who do not want to walk far.
Lunch will be at Bistro Bethem which sits in the historic district of Fredericksburg. Owned by an innovative young couple, they create fresh, seasonal menus with as southern accent.
Garden Week in Virginia is always popular so sign up early for this spectacular spring day. Bring a friend or two and spend the day wandering through gardens and homes where "the past meet the present".
