Garden Walk Buffalo invites gardeners from the Peace Bridge to Main Street and from Canalside to the Scajaquada to be part of the 2017 Garden Walk Buffalo, to be held Saturday and Sunday, July 29 and 30 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Share your garden and show your pride in our neighborhoods and city!
Garden Walk Buffalo hosts the largest free garden tour in the country with 60,000+ visitors coming from all over the states, Canada and further abroad. It has an estimated economic impact of $4.5 million. There is no contest and no prizes — the objective of the Walk has always been to encourage neighborhood beautification and to promote community pride. Just fill out the registration form and your garden can become part of this wonderful event.
Your garden does not need to be perfect; no one’s ever is. Gardens range from large properties to a few square feet – but that is OK – it is the diversity that makes this event a success. When you fill out the registration form, you decide how much access to give visitors. If you only want people to see your front garden, that is up to you. You simply indicate that and mark the box on the lawn sign that will be provided to you.
Garden Walk Buffalo, the largest garden tour in the U.S., is held the last weekend of July each year. In 2016, more than 400 residences and businesses throughout the West Side of Buffalo opened their creative urban gardens for tens of thousands of visitors.
