The 14th Annual Castlegar and Area Garden Tour features gardens in Castlegar, Pass Creek, Krestova, along Highway 3A plus a peony show.
If you haven’t experienced the Castlegar Garden Club’s premier event, this is the Moment to become an inspired gardener.
The tour is Sunday, June 28, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
A carnival of colour captures the allure of ten garden venues. Unfetter your mind with horticultural panache and creative ingenuity. You can savour every second of this year’s garden tour that will go straight to the gardener’s heart.
A relaxing drive takes you through the majestic countryside of Pass Creek and upwards to Krestova and Big Sky country where the Doukhobor vegetable gardens are legendary.
Make sure to take your time and enjoy this often-missed scenic route. Return along Highway 3A and catch more enchanting and eclectic gardens, miniature horses and a dog agility demonstration. Your self-guided tour will unfold like a dream, so you can start anywhere and plan your own route.
Catch the flute music of the Wind River Flute Quartet at the
Castlegar Station Museum from
10 a.m. to noon.
The dazzling debut of the first BC/Yukon Peony Show at the Sandman Inn is one of the highlights of this year’s garden tour.
