Event Details

This year’s 20th edition of the longest running North Shore garden tour is back with Spring hot on its heels. 14 private residential gardens in various neighborhoods in North Vancouver and West Vancouver, 32 local artists and 28 musical ensembles come together to create an unforgettable celebration of creativity. In past years, visitors requested more musical performances and we’ve listened! With double the amount of musical performances, each garden will see live music for 4 hours on both Saturday and Sunday.
Join us on Saturday & Sunday, May 25 & 26, from 12-5pm, for this rain or shine event to welcome Spring through the arts.
Art in the Garden offers outdoor, landscaped settings as a platform for talented local artists to showcase their work. This year’s event includes pottery, photography, sculpture, and acrylic and oil paintings, with many works inspired by our natural surroundings. Enjoy the sounds of local musicians performing, jazz, acoustic roots, traditional world fusion, and pop. Every garden will have two musical acts per day. This weekend-long event is a great opportunity for people to come out and meet their neighbours, chat with the gardeners and artists, and enjoy the creative side of the North Shore.
Passes are now available for purchase online, by phone at 604-988-6844, or in person at  CityScape Community Art Space, and will be available at all gardens on the tour during the event weekend (cash only at the gardens). Passes purchased online must be picked up at CityScape Community Art Space (335 Lonsdale Avenue) during regular business hours before the event weekend. Online sales will end at 12pm on Friday, May 24 and passes can be picked up at the office until 5pm that day. Passes are non-transferable and non-refundable.
Feedback from visitors, gardeners, artists, and volunteers has long indicated that the live music completes the inspired atmosphere in each garden. We’re thrilled to be able to double the number of musicians in each garden in 2019, thanks to the generosity of Parc Retirement Living and RBC. This year, for the 20th anniversary of the event, visitors can enjoy music in each garden for 4 hours each day.
