Art and gardens will be on display in the Slocan Valley on Sunday

Slocan Valley Art and Garden Tour set for Father’s Day

The tour features nine gorgeous valley gardens for you to discover.

Organic market gardens, landscaped ponds, prolific family gardens and flowers everywhere — nine gorgeous valley gardens for you to discover.

The 14th annual Slocan Valley Art and Garden Tour will be on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 16 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There are five new gardens and four past favourites to explore between Slocan Park and the Village of Slocan. Local artists and musicians will be on hand throughout the day.

At the Four Seasons Greenhouse in Winlaw, The Vallican Whole Choir will perform at 11 and 11:40 a.m., and the Slocan Valley Community Band will play from noon to 1 p.m.

Tour brochures are available at local garden centres and on community bulletin boards. An online version is available at slocanvalleyarts.ca. Besides directions to each garden, the brochure will help you find an excellent espresso, the valley’s best ice cream cone, a Father’s Day brunch or a quick lunch when and where you need it.

This much-anticipated event is sponsored by the Slocan Valley Arts Council, and donations are gratefully accepted on site.

For more information contact Ruth Porter at 250-226-7349.
