Flower & Garden Festival scheduled to take place at Ida Lee Park
The Town of Leesburg’s 31st annual Flower & Garden Festival will be changing locations for 2021.
The Town’s unofficial start to spring has been traditionally held on the streets of historic downtown Leesburg. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event will be moving to Ida Lee Park. According to Deputy Director Kate Trask, the move will provide a better opportunity to allow social distancing.
“After having to cancel the festival last April, staff is excited to be planning this year’s event,” Trask said. “Of course, we are all hopeful that the positivity rate will be waning come springtime so the festival can be held. We’ve missed hosting our community events.”
The festival will be on Saturday, April 17, and Sunday, April 18, rain or shine. It is being planned according to all Virginia Department of Health guidelines in order to provide a safe environment for festival attendees, vendors, and staff.
Staff is looking forward to the return of the festival to downtown Leesburg in 2022. To stay up to date on this year’s festival, visit www.flowerandgarden.org.
