The Abingdon Garden Club is proud to announce that their 18th Garden Tour will be held on Saturday, June 17th, from 10 a.m. - 5p.m., rain or shine. Tickets are $10.00 per person and will be on sale starting June 1st at various downtown Abingdon businesses, including Greer Jewelers at 253 W. Main Street, and Necessities at 266 W. Main Street. You can also pick up tickets the day of the tour at the Visitors Center, 335 Cummings Street or at any of the gardens on display.
This year there will be seven gardens open to the public for a leisurely, self-guided tour which will feature: outdoor kitchen entertainment centers, horse paddocks, a pond with cascading waterfall, a running creek, hardscapes and patios with specimen trees and an abundance of beautiful flowers, plus the butterfly garden at Eberhardt Park. The home of William and Kristy Davis will also be open for guests to view their first floor.
Proceeds from the event will go toward purchasing plants and flowers for the community to enjoy at Eberhardt Park, the Blue Star Memorial, the Shakespearean Garden at the William King Museum of Art, and the Cancer Center at Johnston Memorial Hospital.
The Abingdon Garden Club was formed in 1927 and has continually been involved in community education and beautification.
Please come join us for an exciting day of simple beauty in the gardens of several homes for our Garden Tour.
