MARS Mother’s Day Weekend Garden Tour

2024 Mother’s Day Weekend Garden Tour


The second weekend in May is the annual MARS Mother’s Day Garden Tour, where the public gets to peek into the finest gardens in the Qualicum Beach / Parksville area!

Each year, our intrepid team seeks out unique and outstanding gardens within easy driving distance of Parksville and Qualicum Beach.  (If Mom’s a garden enthusiast, a MARS Garden Tour ticket makes the perfect Mother’s Day gift!)

In addition to their natural beauty, many gardens also feature artists, floral art creations, or Master Gardeners to answer your questions.

This is a self-guided tour that runs from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM on Saturday and Sunday.  With your ticket, you can visit the gardens in any order you choose, and tour them at your own pace on either (or both) days.

Location: Multiple gardens in Qualicum Beach/Parksville
Date: Saturday May 11/24 and Sunday May 12/24
10:00 AM to 4:00 PM both days
