The committee are already planning for 2021 and the dates are set.
The gardens and information you see listed on this website now, are the gardens for 2020. Many are returning for 2021 but we have some new gardens, a new tour, new places of interest and a guest speaker (or two) to inspire you.
We will update the website with all the gardens and new information in May 2021 but remember to lock in those dates and book your holidays!
There are garden events to educate, entertain and inspire you. While you’re enjoying our gardens and warm hospitality, we hope you’ll stay a night or two and visit our wineries, cafés, retail shops and the many other attractions of the Hurunui District. Book your accommodation now to avoid disappointment.
There’s so much to experience and enjoy at the Garden Festival. Come and join us for a weekend in the inspirational gardens of the Hurunui.

The gardens are arranged into geographically based clusters, making it easy for you to plan your visit to multiple gardens. Each cluster has its own detailed map, showing you the precise location of the gardens, along with useful information, such as the locations of public toilets, accommodation, petrol and diesel stations, and food outlets.
