    What IS the Festival of Homes and Gardens? I only see sales policies and helpful info that shows tickets information. I have not found a description of what the Festival of Homes and Gardens actually is.

  2. Diane Fekete says:

    Where can I find the pricing structure for the festival? Is there an all inclusive price and also individual per event way to purchase tickets

      Hi Diane. The ticket price is listed with the individual events. Virtual programs are $20 each. Food For Thought Lectures $55pp (includes lunch). Morning History Walks are $30pp. Garden tours $75pp. Gullah Spirituals are $40pp.

    I will not be in Charleston until the day of my garden tour. the information states that tickets for garden tours must be picked up in person at the Historic Foundation Office with a picture ID in advance. Can I have someone else pick them up for me, or can i pick them up on the day of the tour?
    thank you!
