Events & Activities

Garden Experiences

The Annapolis Royal Historic Gardens is home to a variety of unique events and activities in addition to the every day Garden experience. In 2022 we joined our garden colleagues across the country in celebrating Canada’s Year of the Garden and hosting a variety of activities and programming throughout the season. 2023 planning is underway – stay tuned for details!


EVERY DAY (June – Sept) – Sculpture in the Gardens

In addition to some permanent artwork, each year different sculptural pieces are selected by a jury of the artists’ peers for display within the Gardens. The artists have graciously loaned and installed their sculptures, resulting in a unique marriage of contemporary sculpture and historic gardens. Some of the work is for sale – please ask our staff for details.

EVERY DAY – Scavenger Hunts for Kidz

The Gardens are a great place for kids – they enjoy the simple things in nature. To keep your youngsters engaged, ask for a scavenger hunt activity.

Guided Tours

Our terrific Volunteer Guides are pleased to offer guided walks in the Gardens. Tour schedule is dependent on availability of volunteers. Please ask upon arrival.

Guest Speakers

From time to time we have expert speakers available to us on a variety of horticultural topics. Those will be listed here as they are booked.
