Welcome to the 2018 Bay of Plenty Garden & Art Festival, in which we celebrate the beauty and diversity of our region's gardens and the creativity of talented artists. Our registrations are closed and we now have 70 beautiful gardens and over 50 magnificent artists to show off to you from the 15th - 18th November 2018. Our artists will display their pieces throughout gardens and galleries located around Tauranga and the Western Bay of Plenty. We will also showcase fascinating landscape gardens and more of our artists work at our festival hub "Bloom in the Bay" in the Historic Village.
Presented by Craigs Investment Partners & produced by the Bay of Plenty Garden and Art Festival, On the Couch is a lead up event to this year's festival. It is an entertaining live talk show hosted by The Bug Man – Ruud Kleinpaste who will be interviewing our superstars of garden & art. On the couch this year will be Dave Roy who is a talented loyal artist and sculptor who has been part of the Garden & Art Festival since it started 22 years ago, Nichola Vague who is a landscape architect well known for her designs in large scale hotels in Dubai and many more projects in cities around the globe, Gary Cook - one of our gardeners who will show us how to make plants sing, Geoff Canham a tree expert and sought after parks and recreational reserve consultant who has delivered many stirring seminars around the world, wine expert Dan Shea from Mills Reef who will inspire us with his knowledge on the process of winemaking from grape to bottle.
