Tickets are selling like hotcakes for the 2012 edition of the Annapolis Royal House & Garden Tour, on Saturday, July 7 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. With five private properties and Annapolis Royal’s own Historic Gardens at the height of rose season, it promises to be a very special day.
The much-anticipated annual tour builds on Annapolis Royal’s notable accomplishments as a Communities in Bloom winner at the provincial, national and international levels, and as the World’s Most Liveable Small Town.
In 2012 the town and Gardens garnered more attention on an international level, with the town’s award as the “Best Old House Neighbourhood 2012” and The Gardens being recognized as one of “5 North American Gardens Worth Travelling For.”
This year's tour features five properties in and around Annapolis Royal, where participants will enjoy a great mix of garden styles, meet some very knowledgeable gardeners, and have a look inside some incredible houses as well.
Tour Tickets include a visit to the Historic Gardens in peak rose season and a special tour with horticulturist Karen Achenbach at 4 p.m. Also included are refreshments at the Historic Gardens from 1 to 5 p.m. And to add even more value, tour tickets entitle participants to a discount on admission at several local attractions, and to a special ticket price for “Wine & Roses” in The Gardens on Friday, July 6 from 7 to 9 p.m.
House & Garden Tour tickets may be purchased at the Historic Gardens or online at www.historicgardens.com. Tickets are $25 per person. And 2012 Garden members (season passholders) can purchase tour tickets at a reduced rate of $20.
