This Sunday, the North Dearborn Association will host its 58th Annual Dearborn Garden Walk in Chicago’s Gold Coast, Old Town, and Near North neighborhoods. The popular, nationally-recognized event takes place from noon until 5:00 p.m. and includes access to 20 of the area’s most distinctive private gardens, patios, and terraces.
A number of sites will showcase vignettes by local Chicago designers and decorators and several gardens will feature live musical performances. The event also includes admission to gardening seminars and a guided sidewalk architectural walking tour of historic Dearborn Parkway departing at 1:30, 3:30, and 5:00 p.m.
Advanced tickets purchased before noon on Saturday cost $30 each and be redeemed along with an event map at Latin Middle School located at 45 W. North Blvd. Tickets purchased after the early bird cut-off will run $35. All proceeds from the Dearborn Garden Walk will go towards continued neighborhood upkeep and preservation.
