Along the Heritage Trail
More than a million vibrant blooms • 19 gigantic gardens and 20 hand-painted super-sized murals • 7 welcoming communities • May 30 - October 1.
The Quilt Gardens... along the Heritage Trail joins quilting, gardening and art into a one-of-a-kind event. A colorful patchwork of quilt inspired gardens and quilt-themed murals linked by the roads that form the Heritage Trail.
Every quilt garden and quilt mural has its own intricate pattern, many are original designs, and each has its own unique story.
Each of the seven unique communities that host quilt gardens & murals has its own special character and fun finds you’ll want to explore.
