Organised and produced by gardeners who are passionate about their craft, our 10-day Taranaki Fringe Garden Festival provides the opportunity to observe garden construction and planting, talk to the gardeners, obtain practical advice and be enchanted by the incredible landscapes that have been created throughout the region.
The Taranaki Fringe Garden Festival is a unique experience that will inspire and motivate you to take your gardening skills to the next level. Our festival is in its 15th year, our success being due to the diversity and quality of the gardens we have on offer.
We invite you to come and visit our 40+ gardens and enjoy the arts, crafts and vintage machinery on our festival trail. Purchase plants seen in various gardens and receive amazing hospitality from our garden hosts.
In 2019 the festival runs from 1st Nov - 10th Nov. See our website for more details or to download a brochure. Brochures available at iSite's and major garden centres. $2pp entry fee to each garden.
