What Small Town Life Is All About

Following the success of our Holiday Home Tour, we have put together a fabulous garden tour for the summertime.

What exactly is THIS IS ADEL? We are a Chamber subcommittee that focuses on celebrating and promoting our sweet town. We are a group of small business owners that volunteer our time and have a lot of fun along the way.

We’re not ordinary and neither are these gardens!


Adel may be a small town but we are anything but ordinary! We are a bustling community, bursting with historic homes, beckoning outdoor spaces, friendly people, engaged businesses, and charming gardens! And we LOVE to show off our uniqueness!


That’s why the Adel Home Garden Tour is back for the second year on Sunday, June 26 from 1-3:30 p.m. This year we have FIVE outdoor oases, each offering a unique perspective on what defines a garden!


Traditional garden lovers will enjoy themes of quiet joy and tranquility or the organized chaos of a cutting garden. Advocates of faith and giving will connect with a special vegetable garden that helps feed the community. Hardscaping, non-living elements of landscaping, will also be featured, along with outdoor entertainment inspiration (think fire pits and pools!)


THIS is what Adel is about! Charm, kindness, and beauty mixed with entertainment and adventure!
