Behind the Garden Gate (Open Days)

A special event of The Garden Conservancy’s National Open Days Program
A partnership between Charleston Horticultural Society, The Garden Conservancy and Spoleto Festival USA

Many of Charleston’s most charming gardens are hidden away behind gates and ivy-covered walls. These inviting sanctuaries beckon visitors each year to come and experience the ultimate garden-visiting opportunity in the beautiful Holy City.

For the fifth year, Spoleto Festival USA will collaborate with the Charleston Horticultural Society and The Garden Conservancy to open these garden gates. Each weekend features eight different private gardens—promising two full days of discovery and wonder in these gardens of Charleston.

Check our tour garden descriptions for May 25 and June 1

Purchase tickets for both weekends to see all 16 gardens. Tours are self-guided between 9:00am and 3:00pm.
