GARDEN TOUR OF KENNEBUNKPORT – July 16, 2022

According to Cicero, “if you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.”

We are very pleased to announce that Graves Library’s Secret Gardens of Kennebunkport will be held again on Saturday, July 16, 2022 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm (rain or shine). 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, non-refundable, and can be purchased in advance online via Eventbrite beginning May 7, or at the Library at 18 Maine Street. On the day of the event, tickets will only be sold at Kennebunkport Consolidated School at 25 School Street.

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. Colorful perennials and annuals, a scenic pond, woodland sculptures, ocean views, a Zen-inspired rock garden, trellised blooms, and many more delights are waiting to be discovered during this special garden tour opportunity.

All proceeds for this event benefit the Graves Memorial Public Library. Thank you for your support!

Please call us with any questions. (207) 967-2778.
