On Sunday, June 30th, the Wilmette Historical Society will host its 2024 Historic Garden Walk! The Society’s first Garden Walk was held during the summer of 2021, and the event’s popularity since then has led to its return this year with new gardens that are sure to fascinate and inspire people of all ages.

Join us in exploring four Wilmette gardens to learn more about their unique designs and features, as well as the exterior architecture and history of their adjoining homes. This is an exciting event for gardeners, history buffs, and those who are simply curious and would enjoy a fun afternoon stroll.

Ticket proceeds for this event benefit the operating budget and special projects of the Wilmette Historical Museum. Beginning May 1, advance discounted tickets go on sale and are $40 for members, $50 for non-members, and $25 for high school and college students. Prices increase by $10 beginning Monday, June 24. Tickets can be purchased on our website or by calling the Museum. Check this page in the coming weeks for a list of sponsors and for the most up-to-date information.

Please note: The Garden Walk requires a PHYSICAL TICKET that doubles as the event program. TICKETS MUST BE PICKED UP IN PERSON at the museum on the day of the event. Ticket pick-up is from 12:30-2 pm on Sunday, June 30 (before the walk begins) at 609 Ridge Road in Wilmette.
