Garden Tour Scheduled to Take Place in Rideau Lakes Once More

With the 2009 Rideau Lakes Studio and Garden Tour opening their doors to the public, those in the Rideau Lakes Township are in for a treat as they explore picturesque country roads and see the works and creations of artisans and artists from the region.

Started 12 years ago by a small band of friends connected by their unique talents, the annual event has become one of the most anticipated tours of the summer, with a new crop of artists joining the exhibition ever year. And with 11 years of experience, this years’ event looks to be better and more successful than ever before.

This year’s tour features new artists, with Bernard Beaudry, Rudolf Welz, Helen Bell, and Mary Chaikowsky joining the fun.

The studios scattered across the Rideau Lakes Township will be opening their doors to guests on the 3rd and 4th of July, a few days after Canada Day, from 10 in the morning to 5 in the afternoon. Free brochures will be given to guests, which will serve as guides throughout the tour and store areas. And if you’re not much of an art aficionado, the brochures will also contain information on the best restaurants and sights & sounds in the area.
