Get ready for the 2022 Lewes Garden Tour, scheduled for Saturday, June 18th from 9 am until 4 pm!
This perennial favorite (pun intended) celebrates its 31st year, and has grown into a destination event that any fan of the beauty of Lewes gardens in the summer should put on their schedule and get tickets in advance. Tickets for pre-registered attendees in $30, but you can also purchase tickets at the Lewes Visitors Center in the historic Fisher Martin House, 120 Kings Highway, or advance on the Lewes Chamber of Commerce website.
There’s a tour committee that each year chooses and invites residents of downtown Lewes to showcase their own home’s garden (imagine the honor but the horror of being ready on time?).
This year’s tour will feature seven private homes, and one public garden…but the locations are yet to be revealed! You must pick up your tickets at the Visitors Bureau during their scheduled hours, and that’s when you will receive the coveted map with directions and more information.
Some of the homes may involve a bit of light driving, so plan ahead. It is a self-guided tour, so there is no schedule to follow other than take it easy and smell the daisies and roses.
But while making a day of it, keep in mind that they are once again hosting a Garden Market at Zwaanendael House, conveniently centrally located in the historic district.
The market will offer local garden related vendors as well as hospitality, so be sure to come armed with your gardening questions because as we know, mid-June still allows more a long summer season to come and work on your own garden.
Lewes Garden Tour is co-sponsored by the Lewes Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau.
