What Is the Mendocino Coast Garden Tour?

Did you know that Mendocino is a prevalent art hub in Northern California? The town boasts excellent art galleries that showcase local artists as well as organizations that promote creativity. It’s no wonder that the Mendocino Coast Garden Tour is hosted by one of these organizations! Indeed, the Mendocino Art Center has been organizing the event for more than 25 years.

This highly anticipated June event is the perfect occasion to witness the striking beauty of Northern California and the diversity and elegance of some of Mendocino’s private homes.

What Can You Expect at the Event?

The Garden Tour combines two of Mendocino’s best features: ocean views and stunning nature. You can walk through Japanese maple garden, nautical garden with ocean-carved arches, stained glass garden, rock garden at a 150-year-old cottage, and many more! Remember to pack your camera, because you’re going to see some beautiful locations.

The event starts on a Saturday morning at the Mendocino Art Center Garden Shop and includes a self-guided tour. You’ll get a map of the different gardens, directions, and additional details. Some sites may also feature art shows and demonstrations, so art lovers are in for a surprise!

You can also participate in the Opening Night Gala on the Friday before the event. This exclusive gala is held at a spectacular private home with glorious ocean views! On the day of the event, a benefit lunch will be held at Ravens Restaurant.
