2015 Garden Festival

30 Oct – 8 Nov 2015

Next year, the 2015 Powerco Taranaki Garden Spectacular will bring an impressive array of gardens (including some that will be new to the festival) and a diverse events programme.

Visit this page again next July and it will be filled with gardens, events, a landscape design project, tours, guided walks, art and community events. Until then you may like to browse the archives from the 2014 festival which appear on this website.

We do advise booking your accommodation in advance, to avoid disappointment.
