HCG Virtual Events

Hyannis Country Garden hosts events that are designed to be both informative and entertaining. Our fans love our Friday Happy Hours, each starting at 5 PM and lasting for one hour. All Happy Hours are free of charge and you can participate in these either on Facebook Live or by clicking the individual link and registering via Zoom. 

Sunday Seminars are in-depth classes on topics that we’ve seen are of interest to our customers. These virtual events run from 4 PM to 5:30, and the non-refundable cost to attend is $10.00. Our Sunday Seminar one-and-a-half hour programs do a deeper dive into subjects of interest to Cape Cod gardeners. Advance payment and registration will be required, and all who are signed up will receive a pdf handout on the topic and a discount coupon to use on select items in the store. For more information see our schedules posted and click through for more information about our virtual events.

There will be other virtual and in-person events from time to time - please check back often as we update this page regularly. Links to some recorded events are posted further down this page.
