2017 marks the 13th year of the Gracious Gardens of Shaker Heights Garden Weekend! Founded by Margaret Ransohoff to raise money for the Shaker Historical Society, this Garden Weekend has brought pleasure to thousands of people who have traveled from across the nation to attend the annual tour.


ALWAYS held on Father's Day, because it is often when the gardens are at their finest, and because now it has become somewhat of a tradition, the Gracious Gardens of Shaker Heights celebrates the fact that Shaker Heights was designed as a Garden City suburb of Cleveland.


Tickets will go on sale in May and may be purchased from the Shaker Historical Society or from our many local partners.




June 16 - 18, 2017


On Friday night plan to join us for a NEW Cocktail party! We figure the more the merrier, so we plan on cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, live music and one of the most incredible gardens in Shaker Heights - lately featured in FINE GARDENING magazine! You won't want to miss this!
