19th Annual Back Garden Tour – June 2ndand 3rd

It is again time for one of the Island’s most popular springtime events, the Clean Galveston Back Garden Tour.  The Tour is held the first full weekend of June each year.  That will be June 2nd and 3rd this year.  The rain dates if needed will be the following weekend.

There are seven private gardens on tour this year.  The self-guided tours are on Saturday, June 2nd, 10:00a – 5:00p and Sunday, June 3rd, 12:00p – 5:00p.  Advance tickets are $7 each.  Tickets are $10 the day of the tour.  The purpose of the tour is to promote Island beautification and to allow attendees to get ideas from the Tour gardens they can then apply to their own backyards.  Many volunteer hours with the help of several corporate and individual sponsorships make this Tour an annual success.  Call Clean Galveston at 409.762.3363 for more information.

The following lists the gardens on this year’s Tour:
