Join us September 6-8 for the September Newport Secret Garden Tours.

This September, the annual Newport Secret Garden Tours opens its gates to a plethora of stunning gardens in historic Newport, Rhode Island. Join the Benefactors of the Arts on September 6-8 for this self-guided tour featuring at least 10 incredible gardens that are dotted On & Off Bellevue Avenue, the Drive and the Kay/Catherine neighborhoods. These private gardens are shared with the community to help raise funds for the Arts Education programs in the Island’s public schools. The tour runs daily, 10 am until 5 pm, and tickets are good for any or all days of the tour, allowing for inclement weather, schedule conflicts, or just a late start.

Group rates are also available for four or more persons with additional discounts available. Emails us at and check the website for more details. Tickets may also be purchased using cash or check at Kingscote, 253 Bellevue Avenue for $25 on the day of the tour.

Annually since 1984, the organizers and supporters of The Secret Garden Tour have been dedicated to enhancing art education and cultural programs in Aquidneck Island's Public Schools, funding dozens of programs in music, theater and fine arts for local schoolchildren. To date, The Secret Garden Tour has given more than $1 million to Aquidneck Island students in public schools for art, music, theater and other cultural programming.
