Waiheke Garden Festival

Waiheke Island Region


This Event is over for 2022, we are now a biannual event  and our next event will be in November 2024

This year’s festival includes gardens to view - set amongst the bush and the beaches of beautiful Waiheke.

There will be live music, local art for sale and delicious food to purchase at some of the gardens.

Also included again this year is Ngaio’s famous plant sale on Seaview Road from 9 am-12 pm each day, a gardener’s market and a special offer from 3 pm-7 pm at Waiheke’s newest brewery restaurant, The Heke on Onetangi Road.

The festival has been running since 2001 and all proceeds go to the Jassy Dean Trust, which raises money for kids on the island with health needs.

Visit the Waiheke Garden Festival website for more information and tickets.
