Celebrated in the month of Gardens founder Milton S. Hershey’s birthday, Gardenfest allows guests to learn about the wonders of nature as Mr. Hershey intended.
In addition to being able to explore 12 themed gardens, guests also can enjoy entertainment and learn about local non-profit organizations. Some participating organizations include The Garden Club of Harrisburg, Hershey Derry Township Historical Society, Hershey Horticulture Society and Penn State Master Gardeners. The organizations will be stationed along the square garden in Hershey Gardens.
Guests also can enjoy a variety of musical performances by Hershey Area Playhouse, Hershey Community Chorus and Suzuki Strings. Throughout the day, Girl Scouts will be stationed with old-fashioned games for guests to enjoy. Games include hula-hoops, badminton and more.
Gardenfest will be held rain or shine.
