We have great pleasure in welcoming you to the 14th Taranaki Fringe Garden Festival. This is one of New Zealand’s friendliest garden festivals and we pride ourselves on the variety of plants we can grow in Taranaki. The Taranaki Fringe Garden Festival is a ten day adventure into the homes of garden gurus throughout the Taranaki region.

We offer a unique and friendly experience that will inspire and motivate our visitors to take their gardening skills to a new level. All festival gardens have been assessed by an independent committee to ensure they meet our high standard. We hope you enjoy your time in this beautiful part of the country.
