Camden Garden Club Announces 74th Annual Tour – Knox County VillageSoup

CAMDEN – Camden Garden Club is holding its 74th Annual Garden and House Tour on July 21 from 9:30am to 4pm, rain or shine. The private homes on the tour include two interior rooms and four gardens.

“We love welcoming old and new friends to Camden each summer,” said Lucy Ebbert, CGC President. “Each year we search high and low for examples of indoor and outdoor beauty. We believe that this year we have once again created an experience that will be interesting and entertaining for all.” The club’s seven master gardeners will be on hand at each garden to answer questions about landscaping and design.

In addition to the private homes, the event also includes historic Conway House, its Colonial Garden and other historic buildings, as well as special morning and afternoon tours of Camden Public Library’s Historic Amphitheater and Harbor Park.

Rockport artist Holly Smith will paint a plein air scene in one of the tour’s gardens, and raffle tickets will be sold to tour attendees to support the club’s bursary fund.

Tour stops also include a British and European sports car display by members of the Mid Maine Sports Car Club. The Village Soup Food Truck will be parked behind the Camden Public Library on Atlantic Avenue for hungry tourers.

The annual garden and home tour funds CGC’s civic projects, including the lighted wreaths and hanging baskets on lampposts in downtown Camden, maintenance of the village green, landscaping of Laite Beach, flower boxes on the Union Street arch and Main Street bridge as well as street trees and conservatory building programs.

Tickets can be purchased online at for $40 and collected from the tour headquarters at Camden Public Landing on the day of the tour. They are also now available in retail stores across the Midcoast from Belfast to Waldoboro. For more information please contact [email protected]
