For the past twenty years, hundreds of garden enthusiasts have descended upon downtown Frederick for the chance to explore the elegant, whimsical and inventive gardens nestled behind the gates of private Frederick homes each spring.
A favorite of residents and visitors alike, the Beyond the Garden Gates Garden Tour continues to grow in size and attendance. The annual tour has grown to draw over 800 visitors annually and has raised thousands of dollars for local garden clubs and multiple beautification projects around Frederick.
In addition to the the stunning landscapes, visitors are also treated to live plein air artists in many of the gardens, complimentary wine tasting, as well as a charming Hospitality Center where guests are invited to refresh themselves during the tour.
