Open House Garden Tour
The annual open house is a garden tour event providing an opportunity for walks of the Tollgate gardens, enjoying the sights and sounds of this unique setting. Garden volunteers are present to share information about the farm and gardens. This is a free admission, rain or shine event that has proven to be a memorable day of exploring the gardens. The open house will be held on July 20th from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
The Tollgate Fall Fair is a free admission, family oriented event held on the third Saturday of September from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. A full day of children’s crafts, activities and educational presentations are held on site. Hay rides, self guided garden tours, fishing and appearances by the Novi Fire and Police departments are just a few of the fun activities that are part of the fair. Vendors and organizations are present to offer their goods and educational information to visitors. Tollgate Garden Volunteers act as guides on site, conduct activities, offer refreshments and share information. Over the years, the Tollgate Fall Fair has grown tremendously. Don’t miss your chance to enjoy this truly wonderful and relaxing day.
Although Tollgate is open to the public Monday through Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., the special events give visitors a unique guided look at the farm.
