Annapolis Royal House & Garden Tour – July 3

Join us in historic Annapolis Royal as the community showcases some of its unique gardens and houses in a special House & Garden Tour to be held on Saturday, July 3.

The tour will include private properties where residents have made use of unique designs and materials to create wonderful gardens and landscapes.  In addition, several of the featured properties are inviting guests to tour parts of their unique homes. The Annapolis Royal Historic Gardens will be a centerpiece of the tour, in prime rose season, with the Horticulturist on hand to provide a guided tour at 4:00pm.

The day is designed so that visitors can explore the properties at their own pace between 10am and 4pm, while the Historic Gardens are open from 8:00am to 9:00pm. House & Garden Tour tickets are $25, which includes access to all properties, admission to the Historic Gardens and refreshments in the Gardens Interpretive Centre. (Those who have season passes may purchase tickets at a reduced rate of $20).

Experience a full weekend of activities in Annapolis Royal.   Visit the Farmers’ Market on Saturday morning, stroll through the waterfront shopping district, hike along the French Basin Trail, and experience our attractions and museums.  On Sunday, July 4, from 1-4pm on the grounds of Fort Anne, take in demonstrations by the 78th Highlanders and music by the Annapolis Basin Community Band, including an encore performance of the Annapolis Royal Suite by Ron MacKay.

In Annapolis Royal we are proud of our heritage buildings and for the history held within their walls.  We are equally proud to share our gardens and homes, and the stories that they tell.    We hope that you will join us for this unique event.
