The Great Backyard and Patio Tour returns this summer with eight homes featuring diverse settings.

After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, the Friends of the Canby Public Library are bringing back the Great Backyard and Patio Tour this summer.

Billed as a community showcase of the greenest thumbs in "The Garden Spot," the Great Backyard and Patio Tour will offer visits to eight outdoor oases in the Canby area and give guests the opportunity to ask questions and collect tips from the homeowners.

Attendees will be able to see how their neighbors live and play in their back yards and get ideas for their own gardens, patios and other outdoor spaces.

The event is co-sponsored be the Canby Garden Club, who played a key role in helping bring back this event.

Canby's Great Backyard and Patio Tour will be from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, July 9. Tickets are $15 and may be purchased at the Canby Public Library or Cutsforth's Market. The tickets include the addresses for each home on the tour.

All proceeds go toward free educational and cultural programming at the Canby Public Library.

The Great Backyard and Patio Tour is the sister event of the Friends' Canby Christmas Tour of Lights (formerly Tour of Homes), which will also return this holiday season after a successful pilot in 2021.

The Friends of the Canby Public Library are also seeking volunteers to fill immediate openings on its Board of Directors.
