Newport Beach VIRTUAL Garden Tour

Newport Beach VIRTUAL Garden Tour & Summer Garden Party

The 25th Annual Newport Beach Garden Tour, hosted by Sherman Library & Gardens’ Volunteer Association, is happening virtually again this year.  It will be available for viewing starting on Saturday, May 8, 2021 ~ the day before Mother’s Day. 

A professional videographer will film all of the amazing gardens featured on this year’s Tour.  Get ready to view some spectacular gardens that otherwise might not be part of a ‘traditional’ Garden Tour.   Also, you’ll be able to watch and re-watch the videos at your leisure, from the comfort of your home.

Proceeds from the Garden Tour will directly support children’s education programs.  Programs include science and history-based field trips for schools, as well as after-school classes and kid’s camps.  Sherman Gardens is the perfect outdoor classroom for children to develop a lifelong appreciation for nature, and the Sherman Library fosters an appreciation of our regional history.

Summer Garden Party
