It’s almost garden tour time at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., with the White House announcing the dates it’s set to open its outdoor grounds to visitors.

Fall garden tours will take place on Oct. 21 and 22, the White House said in a Thursday news release from the first lady’s press office.

Among the areas open to tourists: the Jacqueline Kennedy Garden, the Rose Garden and the White House Kitchen Garden.


The biannual event is free, but tickets are required for all visitors.

The National Park Service will distribute tickets each morning of the tours on a first-come, first-served basis at a tent on 15th Street and Constitution Avenue, according to the White House.
