The annual “Beyond the Garden Gates Tour” will be held in Historic Frederick on Saturday, May 21st and Sunday, May 22nd, from 1 to 5 p.m. The garden tour is presented by Celebrate Frederick and with the help of the Downtown Partnership, they will present the second annual Garden Marketplace in the square of the courthouse.
The tour will consist of 8 private gardens and 3 public gardens this year, all a mixture of styles, from classic, whimsical, elegant and inventive. There is always much to inspire any gardener, whatever your experience. The cost is $20 per person and makes a fabulous Mother’s day gift. Tickets can be purchased from downtown stores and online at Celebrate Frederick starting in early May. The gardens are usually spread throughout the city so that driving is recommended.
The Garden Marketplace in the courtyard of the Court House (101 N. court Street) will feature music and food, and garden wares for sale. The event is a favorite of Frederick residents and raises money for garden clubs and beautification projects throughout the City of Frederick. I’ve been attending off and on for 20 years, and they just keep getting better. The tour will held rain or shine… but let’s hope it’s shine!
Make plans now to enjoy,
