Santa Fe Garden Tours

The gardens of The Madeleine Bed & Breakfast Inn are about to burst into bloom, along with all the other well-tended gardens of Santa Fe.  Check out some of these luscious gardens during the 17th Annual Santa Fe Garden Club Tour.  

The first tour this year, on June 3 from 1-4 pm, is "The Iconic Eastside".  Meander through the historic Acequia Madre and Canyon Road neighborhoods, with their quintessential Santa Fe adobe homes and old world charm, including the first home designed by the famous John Gaw Meem.  Add to the experience of this June 3 event with a pre-tour picnic lunch, starting at 11:30am, in the beautiful Midyette garden on upper Canyon Road.  The gourmet picnic lunch tickets are just $25, and include entry to the historic Midyette home, a showcase of early Santa Fe architecture.

The second tour takes place the following Sunday, on June 10, from 1-4pm.   Titled "Solitude and Perfection, this tour offers a rare opportunity to visit the private and secluded gardens of notable Santa Fe artists.

Tickets are $40 for a single tour, or $75 to attend both Sunday tours.  Tickets may be purchased online at or by phoning 505.988.1234.
