Saturday, July 13, 5 - 10 pm: Evening Soirée and Preview Tour
Sunday, July 14, 10 am - 5 pm: All Day TourHistoric Palmer Woods, Northwest Detroit
Enjoy a summer weekend in Detroit’s 104-year-old Palmer Woods neighborhood on Saturday and Sunday, July 13-14. An evening preview Soirée with live music, food and libation will kick off the weekend on Saturday evening at 5 pm at one of the neighborhood’s fabulous Tudors, a 6,300-square feet home surrounded by a garden paradise — including a greenhouse, pool, fountains, raised garden beds, and a myriad of flowers, trees, plants and more — designed by Deborah Silver of Detroit Garden Works. A shuttle bus will provide transportation to all the other homes and gardens throughout the evening, and all Soirée guests will have free entry to the Sunday tour the following day.
On Sunday, some ten private homes and gardens will be showcased — in some cases, both the garden and the interior of the home will be open; others will feature only the garden or only the home interiors. Magnificent architecture, exquisite art and design, and fabulous horticulture will be highlighted throughout the historic neighborhood. Visitors will we welcomed into the secluded spaces of homeowners who love flowers, plants, birds, butterflies, and nature.
