2017 Secret Garden Tour

WhenSunday, July 16, 10am-3pm




Online ticketing for this event is now closed. To purchase tickets, please do so beginning at 10am on Sunday, July 16, 2017, at either PAAM or the Gately Funeral Home parking lot at the corner of Harry Kemp Way and Howland Street.

We hope you’ll join us for the 20th annual Secret Garden Tour, a self-guided journey through private residences with stunning gardens. This year’s tour is located in Provincetown’s East End, close to the Museum.


Advance tickets are available online, by phone (508-487-1750), or at the Museum. On the day of the tour, you can purchase tickets at the Museum (460 Commercial Street), or at the parking lot at Gately Funeral home beginning at 9:30am.


PAAM is thrilled to offer free parking the day of the tour thanks to the generous donation of Gately Funeral Home and B,Y&D Insurance Agency. Their lots are located at the intersection of Harry Kemp Road and Howland Street in Provincetown (see map here). The parking lots open at 9:30am. Spaces are available on a first-come first-served basis; if the lot is full, there is more parking available in Provincetown’s Municipal lots.

PAAM volunteers shuttle guests between the parking lot, the gardens, and the Museum, to which ticket-holders receive free admission that day. Shuttles begin bringing guests to the gardens at 10am, or guests may travel the 1/2-mile to the Museum by foot.

The tour includes 10-12 gardens, all within walking distance to each other and PAAM, where guests are invited to view the Art of the Garden exhibition in our air-conditioned gallery and use the restrooms. The shuttles will continue running until 3pm and will return guests to their cars or the Museum.
