Spend a day touring gardens, arts and crafts studios and workshops. The Cortes Island Museum sponsors this unique tour of creative spaces on Cortes each year on a Saturday in the month of June or July. It always has a great variety of special places to stimulate your senses.
Tickets include a map and descriptions of places on the tour and they are available for purchase at Cortes stores, Friday Markets at Manson’s Hall and the Museum. Hosts welcome visitors for the day into their creative spaces, whether rain or shine. Refreshments will be available in the Museum’s Heritage Garden. The tour is a fundraiser for the Cortes Island Museum and supports the Public Education, Outreach and Archive Programs.
Tickets with maps will be available in the Cortes Island Museum and Cortes Island stores early in June. Tickets will also be available at the Cortes Island ferry in Whaletown on the day of the tour. Children under 12 are free.
This year, we present 19 studios and gardens in 17 stops.
