Quilt Gardens of Amish Country

The Quilt Gardens along the Heritage Trail combines quilting, gardening, and art into a one-of-a-kind event, with more than a million vibrant blooms, 19 gigantic gardens, and 22 hand-painted super-sized murals. Join Fernwood as we hit the backroads of Elkhart County to view some of the collection. Enjoy shopping at an Amish cheese shop, bakery, and more. Lunch is included at Das Dutchman Essenhaus.

Got Water?
In an effort to reduce the plastic at Fernwood and in the landfills, as you head to Fernwood on a day hike or bus tour, we encourage you to bring your own refillable water vessel. Fernwood thanks you, and the environment will thank you too!
