Stonington Garden Club Gardens by the Sea Tour
June 10 - June 11
The Stonington Garden Club presents the Gardens by the Sea Tour on June 10th and 11th, 2022. The Gardens by the Sea Tour offers a self-guided walking tour of nine rarely seen private gardens in the historic Borough of Stonington, Connecticut.
Attend an exclusive Preview Party on June 9, 2022 6:00 pm, at the La Grua Center in the Borough. Hear about the gardens on the tour before anyone else. See the artwork of our specially curated artists. Pick up your Tour Guidebook that evening, so no standing in line on tour day! Ticketed separately, space limited.
“Artists in the Borough” is a juried selection of “Plein air” artists who will create art in the gardens and in scenic locations throughout the Borough. Their work will be available for sale at the “Artists In the Borough” Pop-Up gallery at the La Grua Center.
Shop till you drop at our unique vendor market on Wadawanuck Square, with vendors offering a wide variety of garden-inspired items.
Tickets are $35 in advance which are good for both days. On-site tickets are $40.
The tour is rain or shine and there are no refunds. A Tour Ticket is required for anyone over age 5.
Gardens by the Sea is our triennial fundraiser, supporting the club’s community gardens, programs, grants, and scholarships. For more information, please visit our Tour information page.
