The Garden Conservancy’s National Open Days Program and Charleston Horticultural Society

Walls of entwined ivy, dazzling blooms, and sun-dappled fern fronds abound in Charleston’s botanical sanctuaries. For the seventh year, Spoleto Festival USA collaborates with the Charleston Horticultural Society and The Garden Conservancy to open the Holy City’s garden gates for self-guided tours. Each Saturday tour features eight different private gardens, promising two full days of exploration and beauty in these artfully cultivated spaces.

Purchase tickets for both weekends to see all 16 gardens. Tours are self-guided.

Garden descriptions will be available in the spring.
