Cambridge Garden Festival 2018

The Event

Welcome to this year's Garden Festival, in the beautiful town of Cambridge in the heart of the Waikato.

There are ten beautiful gardens available to visit as part of the 2018 Cambridge Garden Festival. Each one can be found of the map supplied when you purchase your tickets and can be visited at your leisure.

The ticket that you receive, with your map will tell you which garden to start at. 

At your first garden you will be issued with a wristband which will be required for entry at all other gardens. 

There may be an opportunity to meet the owners and creators of each garden and find out more about their design history and inspiration.

We are offering the chance to purchase a picnic box, lovingly created and packed for you by Gourmet Delicious. These can only be pre-ordered, and part of the cost will be donated to the charities. Further details can be found in our Buy a Picnic Lunch page.
