Welcome to the official site of the Gig Harbor Garden Tour Association to support child and adult literacy. The profits from the 2012 Gig Harbor Garden Tour helped to support Tacoma Community College's Adult Basic Skills/GED Preparation given in Gig Harbor and Key Peninsula. Donations were also provided to Communities in Schools and Reach Out and Read in the Key Peninsula and Gig Harbor area.
We are so proud of our community response, our sponsors, our advertisers, our vendors, our volunteers, and the dedication and creative spirit of our local gardeners who work diligently for a fun and enjoyable event to support literacy in our local community! This year's tour will be on June 29th from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. and June 30th from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. This is a self-guided tour of gardens, so please wear your walking shoes, and bring your friends for a wonderful day of gardening ideas!

All tickets purchased online on or before June 21st will be mailed to you. Tickets may be purchased in person at the locations listed here. YOUR PROGRAM IS YOUR TICKET.
