Arts and Humanities Bainbridge is proud to have offered Bainbridge in Bloom since 1988. What does 30 years of the Bloom mean? It means three decades of showcasing the incredible level of artistry that members of our community bring to the craft of gardening and landscape design. Three decades of introducing visitors from around the region and across the country to the unique beauty of Bainbridge Island. Three decades of celebrating the joyful abundance of summer in the Pacific Northwest.

This year, five stunning island gardens will be on display. In addition to fabulous flora and breathtaking landscape design, each garden will feature charming performances by an array of local musicians. Interpretive docents and Master Gardeners will also be on hand to answer questions and share their expertise with visitors.

We’re also pleased to announce that, after a hiatus of a few years, ‘Bike the Bloom’ is returning as a feature of the tour. What better way to soak in a beautiful summer weekend than by peddling from majestic garden to majestic garden along the island’s winding wooded byways? And biking the tour route is more than just great exercise: it cuts down on traffic, reduces congestion in tour parking areas, and is the most ecologically friendly way to experience Bainbridge in Bloom! Bike the Bloom tickets will also be offered at a discounted rate.

Regular tickets for the Bloom are $35 for a single day or $55 for a weekend pass. Each day’s tour runs from 9am to 5pm and begins at the Bloom Hub at the Filipino-American Hall, 7566 NE High School Road. Ticket-holders will receive a map to each of the gardens or shuttle locations, a wristband admitting entry to each garden, and other information.

We look forward to seeing you at the 2018 Bainbridge in Bloom Garden Tour, and thanks for 30 great years!
