The Music in the Gardens Tour has been gracing the Long Beach Peninsula since 2005. This tour includes a variety of wonderful behind-the-gate views of private Peninsula gardens with live music by local and regional musicians. Some hosts may also offer refreshments.
This is not just a garden party, it is a chance to explore neighborhoods and towns, meet old friends and make new ones and an opportunity to see the lush and enchanting landscapes that are native to our coastal climate.
This is a self-guided tour of various private gardens scattered around the Long Beach Peninsula.
Exchange your Purchased Ticket's QR Code for a copy of the official ‘Music in the Gardens 2023’ tour map. This can be done one week before the tour starting Saturday, July 8th - July 15th at the following locations:
- Basketcase Greenhouse at 12106 Sandridge Road, Long Beach
- Bay Avenue Gallery at 1406 Bay Avenue, Ocean Park

The map functions as your entry into each garden, so carry it with you.
This is a rain or shine event so please be prepared.
