Sixth Annual Encinitas Garden Festival and Tour
More than 20 private gardens in an Encinitas neighborhood will welcome visitors during the sixth annual Encinitas Garden Festival and Tour, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., April 30.
Celebrating community, gardening and the horticultural heritage of Encinitas, the daylong event features a self-guided walking tour and continues at the Gardener’s Marketplace, which includes artists, specialty plant growers, food, talks and other educational opportunities.
Distinguished by large lots with historic architecture, ocean and valley views and well-established gardens along tree-lined streets, this year’s tour neighborhood showcases gardens designed by both owners and professionals. A portion of the proceeds goes to the Encinitas Garden Festival Fund at the Coastal Community Foundation.
Cost: Marketplace is free. Garden admission is by reservation or ticket only. $21 adults, $7 children. Location: Parking is at Mira Costa College, 3333 Manchester Ave., Cardiff-by-the-Sea 92007. For more information or to make reservations, call 760-753-8615 or visit EncinitasGardenFestival.org.
