Seniors' Tea

Thursday, March 1, 12 pm – 4:30 pm
Adults $10

On Thursday, March 1 from 12 noon until 4:30 pm, seniors 65 or older are invited to enjoy a complimentary cup of tea and a gourmet cookie in the Garden Cafe as part of their $10 admission.

Traditionally Thursday is less busy than the other days of the Garden Festival, so it is an ideal time to enjoy the great line-up of speakers, take in the gardens and shop the Marketplace.


Opening Garden Party

Thursday, March 1, 6:00 to 8:30 pm
$30 per person

The Opening Garden Party is the ultimate sneak peek - a chance to meet up with friends, enjoy a party and visit the Garden Festival without the crowds. From 6 - 8:30 pm visitors can enjoy a glass of red or white from Pelee Island Winery, a craft brew from Black Swan Brewing Company, or other libations from Junction 56 Distillery while sampling a wonderful selection of finger food showcasing the Flavours of Perth prepared by local restaurants.
