Mattpoisett Woman's Club Fundraiser - June 24, 2023

Are you looking for even more signs that summer is really here to stay?  If so, join us at the Mattapoisett Woman’s Club’s JUNE IN BLOOM This year’s biennial Garden Tour will be in full display in our quaint seaside village on June 24, 2023 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 pm.

More than a half-dozen gardens will be waiting for ticket holders, each of which has a garden that has been selected from a variety of styles including formal to informal, woodsy to cottage, and seaside to secluded, and even a monochromatic garden.  The gardens highlight the use of annuals, perennials, herbs, shrubs, trees, and even spectacular container plantings.  Besides simply viewing the beautiful gardens, visitors will find that all of them emphasize steps that can be taken to improve home gardens as well. 

Advance tickets go on sale on May 9 and are priced at $30.00.  You can find them on sale at local businesses including Pen & Pendulum, Isabelle’s, and Ying Dynasty in Mattapoisett, Periwinkles in Fairhaven, and Eden Florist and Garden Shop in Marion, or you can go to our online sales at

On the day of the Tour, tickets will be $35.00 and will be available only at the tented area beside the Ying Dynasty Restaurant on Route 6 in Mattapoisett.  This is the same area where all attendees must stop to pick up their Tour Maps after 9:30 a.m. on the day of the Tour and also where day-of tickets will be on sale.    
Ticket sales will stop at 2:00 p.m. to allow all participants adequate time to see the gardens. 

Also featured during this year’s sale is a raffle for a double-seated Adirondack Chair that has been stained and is assembled.  It is a take-it-with-you raffle but arrangements can be made for picking it up at a later date.  Tickets are priced at one for $5.00 and five for $20.00.  Tickets for the raffle will be on sale in the same location where visitors will stop to pick up their Tour Maps at the Ying Dynasty Restaurant.  Winner need not be present for the drawing. 

The proceeds of this year’s Garden Tour will benefit the Mattapoisett Woman’s Club’s Scholarship Fund, public programming, and community outreach.  The Club is always open to new members from the greater SouthCoast area.  For more information about the Club and/or a membership application, please see our website at
