The popular Mill Creek Garden Tour & Artisan Market had to be canceled this year amid coronavirus concern, but the club plans to be back in 2021.

The Mill Creek Garden Club is disappointed to announce the cancellation of its Mill Creek Garden Tour & Artisan Market 2020 previously scheduled for June 27. Leaders read the reports on the coronavirus, listened to garden owners, checked with volunteers and decided they could not chance putting the community at risk.

The club is happy to report the garden owners and artisans have said they would like to come back in 2021.

The club offers its sincere thanks to the six garden owners who so graciously offered to open their inspiring gardens: Paula and Tom Astrof, Lori and Joe DaSilva, Katie and Monte Kintner, Tawni and James Latter, Mary and Mike Nichols and Sharon and Jim Ware. They've got a date to be on the tour next year.

It also extends its thanks to the businesses who were sponsors of the tour or advertisers in the event brochure: Columbia Funding Mortgage, In Harmony Sustainable Landscaping, Emory's on Silver Lake, McAuliffe's Valley Nursery, Mill Creek Law, McEwen's Cabinets, Rotary of Mill Creek, Senior Care Consultants, Western Pacific Insurance, Window Wares, Eye Society, IRG Physical and Hand Therapy-Gateway, Sanda Cleaners, The Jewelry Source and News of Mill Creek. You believed in us and we hope you'll be on the 2021 bandwagon.

The club appreciates the five businesses that agreed to sell tickets: Central Market, Mill Creek Town Center; ACE Hardware in Silver Lake, Everett; McAuliffe's Valley Nursery, Snohomish; Molbak's Garden + Home, Woodinville and Sky Nursery, Shoreline.

To ticket-buying supporters: the club is truly disappointed they won't have the opportunity to stroll through six beautiful gardens or enjoy the artistry of nine talented artisans, but it hopes people will understand its decision during these uncertain times.

"Gardening is not canceled, though; whether you're a beginner or more experienced, discover what a stress reliever cleaning up your yard and pulling weeds can be," club leaders said. "We'll be back in 2021 and we hope you will too."
