French Quarter Gardens on Tour May 28

Patio Planters of the Vieux Carre Offer Peek into Private Courtyards


For decades, visitors and locals alike have flocked to the Vieux Carre for the annual Secret Garden Tour to discover magnificent private gardens and courtyards not generally accessible to the public.  This treasured ritual returns on Saturday, May 28, for one day only from 12 noon until 4 pm. 

French Quarter homeowners are again collaborating with Patio Planters to open a minimum of six gardens and courtyards for viewing during a self-guided walking tour.  The casual stroll offers a glimpse into how designers and residents take advantage of small spaces, adorned with greenery and flora to provide cool hideaways suited to the New Orleans climate in styles of early Spanish and French architecture.  Locations of featured gardens and courtyards will be specified on a map given to participants when Secret Garden tickets are picked up. The event is rain or shine.

Advance tickets are strongly encouraged due to limited capacity. Tickets may be purchased at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/french-quarter-secret-garden-tour-tickets-322694075667 for $30 each and must be picked up the day of the event at 701 Chartres under the alcove of the Cabildo on Jackson Square from 11:15 a.m. until 3 p.m. Day-of ticket sales for the Secret Garden Tour will also be offered there for $35 based on availability. Children under 12 are free.

This outdoor tour includes charming gardens and courtyards only, with no access to homes or indoor spaces. Due to narrow entrances, maneuvering strollers or wheelchairs may be difficult.
