Thank you for attending the 2019 Garden Tour & Garden Faire!
We hope to see you next year on June 28, 2020 for our 20th Anniversary Event!
2019 Garden Tour & Faire Update
Due to perfect summer weather, hundreds enjoyed the Faire in downtown McMinnville. Shoppers shared they were pleased with the varied selection of wares. The 68 vendors reported they were happy with the foot-traffic and sales. Several vendors have already registered for next year.
Garden tour tickets totaled 611 sales. Guests enjoyed the variety of gardens consisting of large to smaller landscapes, varied plants and unique designs. Not all bills have been processed at this time; the club should realize a profit. A full report will be presented at the September garden club meeting.
Our appreciation and gratitude is extended to all members for your support of the event. No matter your task, your contribution made a difference. Proceeds will continue to benefit scholarships and community beautification. Thank you very much and see you in September!

2019 Garden Tour & Faire Co-Chairs
Dear Gardening Friends,
The Garden Tour and Faire is our annual fundraiser and proceeds go towards $1,000 scholarships to deserving Yamhill County Students as well as funding community beautification projects. In 2018 the McMinnville Garden Club awarded $3,000 for scholarships, and also planted and maintained the West End Entry in welcoming people to McMinnville. Our club also added hanging baskets and plantings on historic Third Street among our many projects. The 19th Annual Garden Tour and Garden Faire will be held on Sunday, June 23, 2019.
The Garden Tour is a five garden, ticketed event that draws garden enthusiasts from all over Oregon.
The Garden Faire is a delightful companion event, open to the public at no charge, and is located in the historic section of downtown McMinnville (Cowls street between 1st and 3rd streets). Our advance publicity and day-of-event directional signage provides a natural draw to this popular and fun location.
Our vendors include traditional and specialty plant growers, yard art, clothing items, jewelry, furniture, art work, metal work and whimsy of all kinds. To keep our event fresh and exciting, we are constantly on the lookout for new and unique vendors to add to the excitement and we think this event might be of interest to you.
Attached is a Registration Form for your review and submission.
We would love to have you consider being a part of the fun at the Garden Faire!
Mike, Gaye & Ruth
