Six homeowners have agreed to open their private gardens for this one day only to help raise money for the Library. Tickets are $40 each and they can be purchased in advance on Eventbrite via the link above or at the Library at 18 Maine Street. On the day of the event, ticketholders should begin at Kennebunkport Consolidated School at 25 School Street to pick up their map. Day-of tickets will only be available for sale at Consolidated School.

A detailed map will be provided on the day of the tours to all ticket holders to reveal the secret locations of the six participating properties. Visitors will be treated to a wide variety of garden styles and plant types amid lovely natural settings hidden from view behind stone walls, seaside cottages, and privacy hedges. The magical garden settings include an abandoned granite quarry, a historic riverfront home, a wooded wonderland, and yards with sweeping ocean and harbor views.

This year, gardeners will especially appreciate the option to stop at the Kennebunkport Conservation Trust annual plant sale at 57 Gravelly Brook Road- perfect for shopping, grabbing lunch from Beach Dawgs, and dessert from Gemini Cakes! Additionally, tour goers are encouraged to avoid the parking crush by visiting the gardens on the trolley that will be looping past the stops to drop off and pick up visitors.

All proceeds for this event benefit the Graves Memorial Public Library. Please call us with any questions. (207) 967-2778.
