How does the garden tour work?
Can I get the Garden Tour Program before the day of the tour?
Each garden tour ticket has a "starting garden location" on the back. Start the tour at that address or at the Art Show and Garden Market location.
At the "starting garden location" (or the Art Show and Garden Market) the tour ticket will be exchanged for a Garden Tour Program that contains detailed driving directions to each garden, a map,
description of each garden, etc.
A garden tour ticket or Tour Program is required for every guest entering a private garden.
In order to protect the privacy of our garden hosts, the Garden Tour Program is not available in advance, however a preview of the gardens is available on our website.
Can we tour with friends who have a different "starting garden location"?
For large groups we would appreciate it if you would start the tour at the Art Show and Garden Market. Here you can exchange your tickets for programs. If there are just two of you, feel free to start at either of your tickets "starting garden location".
If I only have a half day, will I be able to see all the gardens?
It is possible that you could see all the gardens in half a day, buy it may not be as enjoyable. Many visitors enjoy lingering in each garden or visiting with the garden hosts. If touring all of the gardens might not be possible, consider previewing the garden descriptions on our webnsite to prioritize the gardens most interesting to you.
Do children need a ticket?
Every guest entering a private garden requires a ticket, including children. Keep in mind that children often do not have the patience for this type of event.
Are the gardens handicap accessible?
Each garden is different. The Garden Tour Program specifies accessibility in the garden description. If you will require assistance touring the gardens, the person assisting you will also require a ticket.
What kinds of things will be for sale at the Art Show and Garden Market?
Artists will have outdoor sculplture, glass and metalwork, and jewelry. Vendors will be selling plants, cut flowers, produce, and cool garden related items.
What if it rains the day of the tour?
This is a rain or shine event. Gardens are often at their most beautiful when kissed by a refreshing Oregon rain.
What if I can't use the ticket after I buy it?
Garden Tour tickets are non-refundable. If you purcahsed a ticket and can not use it, consider giving it as a gift to a friend.
As an artist or vendor, how do I get my work considered for the art show?
Art work must be handcrafted, and garden themed is preferred but not mandatory.
Artists are selected to ensure a representation of art work across all art media while at the same time showcasing each artist's individual work and style.
