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, as well as a Hospitality Center where guests are invited to refresh themselves during the tour.

A special thank you is extended to the following artists for donating their considerable time and talents to paint during the tour: Mary Garwood, Margaret Huddy, Rebecca Jackson, Helene Keefner, Courtney Lee, Maria Marino, Kristen Morrison, Steve Poole, Julianne Porter, Melinda Prescott, Deborah Richardson, Paula Rubin-Wexter, Ann Schaefer, Lou Wilson, Larry Witham and Linda Zvolenski.

This year, Celebrate Frederick is pleased to be working with the Men’s Garden Club of Frederick.  For more information on the club, and their many worthwhile projects click on the button below.
