Description:

The 2022 event will give garden hosts the opportunity to be as colorful as their gardens.  “Hats On to Gardeners” plays right into the hands of the unique individuals who make up this quirky one-of-a-kind neighborhood.  Gardeners, vendors, speakers, and visitors will be encouraged to decorate a hat of their choice in a manner that reflects their garden style. Zany, offbeat, beautiful decorated hats will be available for purchase.

The Cooper-Young Garden Walk is the largest event of its kind in the South.  It has grown over the past six years to include 100+ urban gardens and draws visitors from as far away as the Mid-West and Connecticut.   The CYGW has been increasing its share of the rising garden tourism segment every year. There have been enough enquires about the 2022 event that plans are being made to partner with new Midtown hotels.  Additionally, the beloved “BackBeat Tour Bus” will be shuttling visitors to the different neighborhood quadrants.
