McMinnville Garden Club's 19th Annual Tour and Faire
Sunday, June 23, 2019 9:00am-4:00pm
Downtown McMinnville, OR

The five gardens selected for the 2019 tour are each enjoyable and gorgeous in their own special way. The variety of sizes, landscaping features and purposes will delight with their own individuality and unique characteristics. Garden hosts and tour volunteers will be on site to offer tips, answer questions and point out special garden features.

The garden fair will be held in downtown McMinnville at Second and Cowls Street, one block off of Highway 99W and adjacent to our charming Main Street with its architecture, wine tasting, boutiques and fabulous restaurants. Over 60 vendors are scheduled from Oregon and Washington offering an abundance of unusual perennials, ornamental grasses, hanging baskets, succulents and specialty trees and many other items will be for sale such as one of a kind garden structures, whimsical decorations and more.

Proceeds from both events benefit local community projects for the ongoing beautification of McMinnville.
