This year has presented many challenges that no one expected.  The feeling of uncertainty that COVID-19 has created stretches to all corners of the earth.  It is that uncertainty that has led the Steering Committee of the Winston-Salem Garden Tour to look at different options for the Celebration Luncheon this fall.  In the end, we decided that it is best for everyone to reschedule the Celebration Luncheon with Margot Shaw for Friday, October 15, 2021.  This decision, which is supported by the Garden Club Council, puts the health and overall well-being of our guests as our top priority.  It is terribly disappointing not to be able to share this wonderful event in 2020.

When we do gather together in 2021, we will really have something wonderful to celebrate!  It goes without saying that tickets for the Celebration Luncheon will be honored on the new date in 2021.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you and understand that your plans may have changed.  If you cannot attend the luncheon, please consider donating your tickets back and receive a 100% tax deductible contribution to the Garden Club Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County.  A letter of donation for your tax records will be sent to you at a later date.

Refunds for the Celebration Luncheon will also be available upon request.  Please email us at if you would like to donate your tickets or would like to receive a refund.  Refunds will be granted until September 4, 2020.

Tickets purchased for the garden tour on April 24, 2021 are no longer subject to a refund.

Since March, we have been working remotely so please be patient.  The best way to reach us is through email.  Please send your questions to

Thank you for sharing this information with your club members.  We are so grateful for your understanding and support.


Stay well and take care,
