We are thrilled to welcome you to the 31st Powerco Taranaki Garden Festival.
Formerly the Rhododendron Festival, we were established in 1987 and continue to delight people from all over the world. This year we offer you an intriguing mixture of both unique and stunning New Zealand gardens, each with their own story to tell. During the festival we have jam packed a mixture of free and paid events that will cater to your individual palette be it a family outing or wine on your mind. Our region's public gardens are our festival gems, but it’s our private gardens open exclusively for the 10 days of the festival that are a must see. Self drive around our majestic maunga (mountain) and explore the beauty of our region.
