Garden and Studio Tour

Annually in Summer

Spend a day touring gardens, arts and crafts studios and workshops. The Cortes Island Museum sponsors this unique tour of creative spaces on Cortes each year on a Saturday in the month of June or July. It always has a great variety of special places to stimulate your senses. Tickets include a map and descriptions of places on the tour, and they are available for purchase in late May at Cortes stores, Friday Markets at Manson’s Hall and the Museum. Refreshments are available in the Museum’s Heritage Garden.

The tour is an important fundraiser for the Cortes Island Museum and supports Public Education, Outreach, and Archive Programs.
