They may be accompanied by non-member guests. If the tour is not sold out by a specific date, tours are then open to the general public to join the group.

Each spring visitors are welcomed to over 250 of Virginia’s most beautiful gardens, homes and historic landmarks during “America’s Largest Open House.” This 8-day statewide event provides visitors a unique opportunity to see unforgettable gardens at the peak of Virginia’s springtime color, as well as beautiful houses sparkling with over 2,300 flower arrangements created by Garden Club of Virginia members.
Tour proceeds fund the restoration and preservation of more than 40 of Virginia’s historic public gardens and landscapes, a research fellowship program, and a Garden Club of Virginia Centennial project with Virginia State Parks.
Highlights include Tokyo, Nikko, Kanazawa, Kyoto, Kurashiki, Naoshima (Museum Island) and Osaka featuring gardens, crafts and cuisine.
