Old Home Days, an event that was last held in Lancaster 100 years ago, is being resurrected and is scheduled for June 30 through July 6. The Lancaster Garden Walk will take part.

In addition to its main walk, which will be held from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, July 20 and 21, the Lancaster Garden Walk will hold three mini-walks as part of Old Home Days.

The mini-walks are:
  • Art in the Gardens, noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, June 30. Six artists will display their work in six gardens.
  • Roses in the Garden, 5 to 9 p.m. Monday, July 1. The red rose is the official flower of Lancaster, so everything from rose lilies to rose paintings to actual rose bushes will be shown.
  • Lancaster Lights the Landscape, 8:45 to 10:45 p.m. Friday, July 5. Lancaster gardeners will show their gardens under lights. This is the first nighttime garden walk in Lancaster.

Maps for all events will be available at the Lancaster Historical Building, 40 Clark Street, Village of Lancaster.

If you’d like to feature your own garden on the Lancaster Garden Walk, return this form by June 1 to the address on the form.
