A self-guided tour through twelve private gardens throughout Sanford’s Historic District.

This event will feature an artisan vendor market, local gardening and wildlife educators, plein air artists, and a tea lunch. It is the inaugural event of the newly formed nonprofit, the Sanford Cultural Guild.

On this self-guided walking or driving tour in Sanford’s Historic District, you'll meander down tree-lined streets and admire the well-preserved architecture, wrap-around porches, verandas, and manicured gardens where there’s always something blooming.

Savor the springtime weather and be inspired for your own yard projects as you stroll through gardens overflowing with flowers, native plants, and creative landscapes. Enjoy watching Plein air painters and bidding on your favorite pieces of art. Learn from interacting with educational speakers on a variety of gardening, wildlife, and home topics.

After gathering inspiration, visit our marketplace at Centennial Park (400 S Park Ave, Sanford). We’ll have several vendors selling plants and garden-themed gifts just in time for Mother’s Day! Here you can also enjoy iced refreshments and delicious lunch options. The marketplace is open to the public. The perfect way to spend a day in beautiful historic Sanford!
