Penny McHenry Hydrangea Festival Exploration Challenge

Welcome to the 14th Annual Penny McHenry Hydrangea Festival!

The Festival is named in memory of Penny McHenry, founder of the American Hydrangea Society. Penny received a hydrangea from a friend when she lost one of her daughters. She fell in love with the beautiful plant and began propagating hydrangeas, and the rest is history. She became world-famous as “The Hydrangea Lady.”

While at the event this year, take the Penny McHenry Hydrangea Festival Exploration Challenge for a chance to win a prize!
