BUFFALOVE: Garden Walk Buffalo is America’s largest garden tour, attracting more than 60,000 visitors annually. In 1993, Buffalo gardeners Marvin Lunenfeld and Gail McCarthy attended an urban garden tour in Chicago and thought the concept might work well for their own block club back home. They presented the idea to the members of their Norwood/West Utica Neighborhood Association, and by the summer of 1995 a group of volunteers had set up the basic plan for the first Garden Walk Buffalo, held that year in July.
The weekend-long Garden Walk was open to anyone in the area who wanted to participate, with no prior judging or entry fee: 29 gardens participated that first year, most of them in the area surrounded by West Ferry, Richmond Avenue, Summer Street, and Elmwood.
No admission was charged for the first Garden Walk and it remains free today, but the event has grown well beyond its original size and scope. Garden Walk Buffalo has garnered regional and international garden tourism awards, beautified and rejuvenated neighborhoods, increased local home values, and has hosted tens of thousands of visitors from around the U.S. and abroad each year – for an estimated annual $4.5 million economic impact. The number of gardens participating in the Garden Walk has also increased every year, growing to more than 400 in 2015, making the event the largest of its kind in the U.S.
