Glorious Garden Festival

Glorious Garden Festival at the Davis Mansion summer 2019.

Calling all gardeners and aspiring gardeners! The David Davis Mansion will be hosting this year’s Glorious Garden Walk titled, “Welcome Summer.”

Attendees will be able to take in all the beautiful plants and flowers the town has to offer at the walk’s nine stops throughout the Bloomington area.

The event will begin at 1 p.m. Friday starting with a driving tour located at the David Davis Mansion State Historic Site.

Tickets will be exchanged for a garden resource book, event coupon and a map showing the nine locations with 12 beautiful, private-owned gardens.

Tickets on the day of the event will be $20 for adults and $10 for children aged 1-17. Advance tickets can be bought for $18 for adults and $10 for children at the David Davis Mansion website.

The event will proceed rain or shine, and tickets will not be refunded. All proceeds benefit the David Davis Mansion historic garden and educational programs.

“Special features include barn quilt squares, vendors selling garden products and plants, complimentary tea and refreshments,” Illinois Country Living Magazine reports.

The David Davis Mansion will have a variety of gardens this year including those with naturalized settings, hardscaped areas designed to perfection, lake views, mosaic artwork and more.
