5th Annual South Philly Garden Tour


Tickets on sale now!

On Saturday, September 12, from 1 to 4 p.m., the South Philly Food Co-op has gathered together a spectacular showcase of private and community gardens for the fifth annual South Philly Garden Tour, a self-guided exploration of dozens of South Philly's most fascinating, lush, quirky and unique outdoor spaces.

This year, we're exploring a record-breaking 29 locations west of Broad, between South and Snyder streets. Buy your tickets today!

Our westward tour will start at our Garden Tour Hub at Julian Abele Park (22nd & Carpenter streets). Arrive early, starting at 12:30 p.m., to get your Hungarian folk art-themed tour program/map (courtesy Ladderback Design) and custom-made swag bag (thanks to designer Occasionette and printer Camden Printworks!) and snap some pre-tour selfies with the Co-op’s photo booth, courtesy Albert Yee Photography.  

While on the tour, keep an eye out for these special goodies:
  • All tour takers with a wristband will be entitled to one free iced coffee at either Ultimo location (15th Street or Catharine Street)
  • Miss Rachel's Pantry will be offering $1 off sticky buns and other selected discounts for tour-takers
  • Keep smiling: This year's garden tour will be video documented by Ever Pictures
This year's after party will take place at Los Camaradas from 4 to 6 p.m. with complimentary passed bocaditos (appetizers) and drink specials ($3 house drafts, $4 sangria, $6 margaritas). 

You can buy tickets at both locations of Ultimo Coffee (1900 S. 15th St. and 2149 Catharine St.), Urban Jungle (1528 E. Passyunk Ave.), and online at our South Philly Garden Tour Ticketleap page. Buy in advance and save $5 off the day-of price!
