Begins at 6th & Washington – Water Tower Square Parking Lot

Mark your calendars for the 20th Annual East Row Garden Walk the first weekend in June — June 4 and 5 — in Newport Kentucky’s East Row Historic District. The Walk will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days.

For 20 years, curiosity, a passion for gardening and a desire for unique ideas have enticed thousands of visitors to tour the charming gardens on the walk, which features nine private gardens including some enver before opened to the public.

This year, a portion of the proceeds will go to the TreeRevitalize Program which is spear heading the planting of new tress in all areas of the city.  This program has lead to the platning of over 200 new tress in Newport in the last two years. Another planting is scheduled for October of this year.
