White House Garden Tours


This event has passed, but check out our calendar for fun today, this week, this month!


In 1972, First Lady Pat Nixon decided to open up the White House gardens for tours twice a year, and that tradition continues today.

Spring Garden Tours dates include April 13-14, 2019; find all the details here.

The tours feature the South Lawn of the White House as well as the Jacqueline Kennedy Garden, the Rose Garden, and the White House Kitchen Garden. The White House Kitchen Garden is the first lady’s personal vegetable gardens and were the first vegetable patches planted at the White House since Eleanor Roosevelt tended to the Victory Garden in the 1940s.

For additional future dates, visit the White House website and enter “White House Garden Tours” in the search box. Typically, the free tickets are distributed by the National Park Service on a first-come, first-serve basis near the entry point each day of the tours beginning at 8:30 am. This entry point is located near the intersection of 15th St. and Constitution Ave. NW. Tickets are needed for all guests, including children.
