Vashon Island Garden Gala

Garden Tour Celebrates 25 Years!

With spring in sight, VAA staff and volunteers are preparing for one of our community’s most anticipated events: the Vashon Island Garden Tour. June 27 and 28 marks the Tour’s 25th anniversary, with a slate of activities that promises to delight garden and art enthusiasts alike.

Sunset Garden Gala is an elegant evening celebration held for the first time at Nashi Orchards. Across its 27 acres, Nashi is home to exceptional Asian pears and apples, locally grown and pressed into perry and hard cider. Guests will enjoy live music, gourmet cuisine by Herban Feast, wines by Palouse Winery and signature cocktails.

Garden Art Market returns with an exciting array of Seattle-area artists and vendors selling creations of many mediums. Once again the Market sets up on the sprawling green in front of the Puget Sound Energy headquarters on Vashon Highway—an ideal spot for a picnic.

The Tour itself boasts five diverse horticultural havens—a charming Dockton garden, a vineyard/winery, and a family farm among others—all tucked away in private corners of Vashon and Maury.

We are grateful to our Garden Tour sponsors – Windermere, J.R. Crawford, Vashon Thriftway and Palouse Winery – for their generous support.
