Powerco Taranaki Garden Spectacular

 Thank you for your support!

The 2016 Powerco Taranaki Garden Spectacular has been a great success and we are very appreciative for the support and funding from our sponsors and the community.

We would like to say a huge thank you to our festival gardeners whose passion and hard work throughout the year and during the festival meant we were able to present gardens of interest to the thousands of visitors from all around New Zealand.

This year, the festival featured 45 diverse and inspiring gardens, 12 gardens of significance, 10 new gardens and more than a dozen exciting events. Of the 45 gardens, 40 were private gardens open exclusively for the duration of the festival.

The festival included a mixture of free and paid events, including house and garden tours, celebrity chef demonstrations, guided walks, workshops and a diverse garden speaker series.

The 2017 festival will take place on 27 October - 5 November 2017.

Details of the gardens and events will be released in July 2017!
