9:30 am - 5:00 pm
(rain or shine)
Two wonderful events in one sponsored by the Cortes Museum. Enjoy walks through unique, private, beautiful gardens and experience the creative environments of island artists and artisans. Make it a day of gardens, art and lunch -- an experience to nourish the soul and the senses.
Lunch is available at Gorge Harbour Marina, Trude's Cafe, Squirrel Cove Restaurant, Hollyhock, Cortes Market Deli and the Take-Out. Or, bring your own picnic to enjoy at Channel Rock, on ocean or lake beaches or in the Museum's Heritage Garden where refreshments will be served all day.
Off islanders should catch the 8:30 am ferry from Campbell River to connect with the 9:05 am ferry from Heriot Bay to Cortes. The last ferry leaves from Cortes at 5:50 pm.
The self-guided tour tickets and map are $12 per person at all stores as well as Hollyhock, the Friday market and the Museum. They will also be available (for those arriving by ferry) at the corner of Seavista Road, from 9:30 to 10:00 am on June 18th.
More information at the Cortes Museum 250-935-6340.
