Join us in historic Annapolis Royal as the community showcases some of its unique gardens and houses in a special Annapolis Royal House & Garden Tour on Saturday July 8, 2017.
Welcome to the 2017 Annapolis Royal House & Garden Tour, in support of the Annapolis Royal Historic Gardens. Our theme this year honours the heritage of the past 150 years in celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday. The featured properties are open from 10:00am to 4:00pm.
This year’s edition celebrates Canada’s sesquicentennial, featuring properties spanning the past 150 years. Notable highlights include a confederation period Greek Revival, an 1882 brick Queen Anne Revival, two late 1890s homes and an award-winning restoration of the 1913-14 Annapolis Royal Train Station. In addition, visitors will visit two special Riverview Drive gardens, as well as the Historic Gardens where a Victorian Refreshment Social will be hosted in the afternoon from 3-5pm.

Start your weekend experience in Annapolis Royal with “Wine & Roses”, Friday July 7, 5-7pm, a unique opportunity to explore the Historic Gardens with a glass of wine in hand! We also have a Sunday Series of activities on July 9 , with a number of opportunities for you to experience our community’s past.
Add a performance at King’s Theatre, visit the Farmers’ Market on Saturday morning, stroll through the waterfront shopping district, hike along the French Basin Trail, and experience our attractions and museums. And be sure to participate in a Candlelight Graveyard Tour, held each night at 9:30pm.
In Annapolis Royal we are proud of our heritage buildings and for the history held within their walls. We are equally proud to share our gardens and homes, and the stories that they tell. We hope that you will join us for this unique event.
