Staunton is blooming! During the last 8 days of April every year nearly 26,000 visitors tour beautiful homes and garden across Virginia and enjoy all the commonwealth has to offer. This year, Historic Garden Week features 29 tours hosted by 47 Garden Club of Virginia member clubs. Nearly 200 private homes, gardens and historic sites will be open, and three of our Heifetz Institute artists presenting a couple of “pop-up” concerts.
Here in Staunton and Augusta county, you can spend a day meandering through the fields and farms of Middlebrook. Located just ten miles southwest of downtown Staunton, visitors will discover one of the best preserved rural villages in Augusta County. This driving tour, jointly hosted by the Augusta Garden Club and the Blue Ridge Garden Club, celebrates the enduring charm of country living in the Shenandoah Valley. From the historic buildings of Sugar Loaf Farms to a folk artist’s abode and studio, the tour highlights the beauty and diversity of country living today.

Heifetz musicians will be playing, and Queen City Plein Air Festival artists will be painting in the gardens of the homes on the morning of the tour.
