This year’s Garden Tour will take place June 12 & 13th, 2021 from 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM EDT. Rain or Shine. In addition, we are offering the Flower School Lecture & Workshop, by Michael Gaffney, the day prior to the Tour weekend, June 11th (see below for ticket purchases).
The self-guided garden tour starts anytime during the day, beginning at 10:00 AM and ending at 4:00 pm. EDT. The Tour takes as long as guests would like to take, keeping in mind that each home and garden site will close at 4:00 PM EDT.
This year, we will have Master Gardeners at two of the homes. Guests are responsible for their own transportation between gardens. Parking will be well-marked and on-site volunteers will direct vehicles to parking locations, which are in close proximity to the gardens.
Photography is allowed outside only. Photos may not be published without written permission by Kilgore Garden Tour Chairman, and also by the homeowner.
Guests are asked to keep children on pathways, out of flowerbeds and other plant areas, and within the defined areas inside the homes on display. Guests are cautioned that the terrain in many instances may not be suitable for strollers.
The Tour is not handicap accessible. Pets are not allowed and only approved assistance dogs will be allowed – for safety purposes.
