Tour Info

"Golden Glow"

The date of the Hidden Gardens Tour is Saturday, June 1st from 9:00am to 3:00pm.
It will be held rain or shine. The tour includes a number of gardens in historic Allentown and the surrounding area.

The tour starts at the Keris Tree Farm at 842 Route 524, Allentown, NJ. Please pick up your tickets and tour guides here. See the map for Keris Tree Farm. The ticket stand will close at 1:30 so please plan accordingly.

The Allentown Art Guild will have a display at the Keris Tree Farm where their art work will be on sale. Also several of the artists will be painting in some of the gardens during the tour. The garden painters and the art sale are dependent upon the weather. If it's raining, that watercolor you just purchased may not look quite the same by the time you get it to your car.

There will be a free drawing for all ticket holders for a chance to receive a painting by Andree Lisette Herz.

Tickets purchased in advance are $15 and are $20 if purchased the day of the tour (cash or check only). Please see Purchasing Tickets for further information.

All children must have a ticket and be accompanied by an adult. Any child not accompanied by an adult may be given a cup of espresso and a free puppy. Sorry, but there are no discounted tickets for children.

While we love them, we regret that pets are not allowed on any part of the tour.

All of the gardens are some distance apart and therefore you will be unable to walk from one garden to the next. You will need a vehicle to get around, but you will enjoy a lovely ride around scenic Allentown and vicinity.

If you have any questions please contact us via email at info@allentowngardenclub.net or use the Contact Us page on our website.
