The Lewes Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau will present its 28th annual Lewes Garden Tour from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, June 16. There are eight private gardens on this year’s tour. Gardens are selected by the event committee chair with assistance from other committee members.
Chair Linda Davison is leading the committee for her third year. Tickets will include garden descriptions, and are available at the Lewes Chamber of Commerce visitor center in the Fisher-Martin House next to the Zwaanendael Museum.
The event also includes a garden market where more than 30 vendors will be selling garden-related items. Some Cape Artists members and chamber member Libby Zando, owner of Zando Designs - Homes & Gardens, will be painting in the tour gardens. Tourgoers can enjoy beverages and lunch provided by Full Belly Bistro in the refreshment tent in Zwaanendael Park.
Free shuttle service is available for tour ticket holders. Chamber members Lewes Senior Center, Irish Eyes Pub & Restaurant, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Gallo Realty and Jolly Trolley will provide shuttle services.
