Denman Island’s Home & Garden Tour usually occurs every two years, and is a much-anticipated highlight of the Spring season in the Gulf Islands. Back for 2013, this year’s tour promises to be as colourful & fascinating as ever before, with some exciting new additions as well as some beloved favourites!
20th Home & Garden Tour Dates
Saturday & Sunday
June 15th & 16th, 2013
Renowned for its many unique and unusual homes as well as its many truly spectacular gardens, Denman abounds in amazing architecture, beautiful flower and bountiful vegetable gardens.
Visitors are catered to in every way. Meals are available in Denman Village when you need a break between viewing properties on either side of the midway point. Tickets are available in advance from many outlets on Vancouver Island from Nanaimo to Campbell River. Should you wish to purchase them on Denman, the Community Centre will offer ticket sales as well as maps and further details on featured homes.
As a fundraiser for the non-profit organization, the Denman Conservancy Association, all proceeds from this fascinating tour go towards preserving unique, environmentally sensitive and historically important parcels of land on the island.
