Wickford Garden Tour 2017

Historic Wickford presents Wickford in Bloom, on Saturday, June 24th,
2017 from 10:00 am to 4:00 p.m. (rain or shine).  This captivating self-guided
garden tour of private and public gardens begins in the center of charming Wickford
Village at Updike Park and will enable participants to experience and explore an
exemplary selection of 12 enchanting gardens.  Designs of the gardens vary from
cottage-inspired treasures to small hidden spaces that will inspire and engage the
viewers to appreciate the variations of plant materials and architectural symmetry.
As well, the tour will pass by historic properties that flourish with natural
beauty.

The 2017 garden tour will feature gardens on properties of 18th and 19th-century
homes and buildings — some on the picturesque harbor and others on the tree-lined
village streets.  On each property a local artist will be capturing the garden
showcased. Your ticket purchase will support the preservation efforts of Historic
Wickford and North Kingstown.

Tickets may be purchased for $25 at the following locations throughout the Village
prior to the event: The Book Garden, Beauty and the Bath, Green Ink, Wickford
Collections, My Paris Apartment, Spring Pottery, Studio 460 and the North Kingstown
Chamber of Commerce.

Tickets may also be purchased for $30 on the day of the tour, Saturday, June 24th,
2017 at Updike Park, where the tour begins.

Wickford in Bloom is sponsored by Historic Wickford, Inc. (HistWick), an
all-volunteer community-based nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving and
celebrating the historic and cultural features of Wickford Village.
