The Waiheke Garden Festival is back!

A fun day out and all in a good cause

The annual fundraiser for children’s charity The Jassy Dean Trust will be holding the 2022 Waiheke Garden Festival on Saturday and Sunday November 5 and 6.

The event promises, once again, to delight visitors – as it has been doing for more than twenty years.

This year’s festival includes 10 beautiful gardens to view – all closely located amongst the beach and bush views of stunning Waiheke Island.

From a Gardeners Market held in a pretty cottage garden, to the sweeping rose-covered slopes of the internationally acclaimed Sacred Blessings Sanctuary, the festival offers plenty of variety.

Visitors can relax over lunch in an expansive landscaped garden with sea views whilst enjoying live music and some delicious food. Acclaimed local artists will have work on display on the lawns.

Masses of plants will be on sale at the popular Ngaio’s Plant Sale in Onetangi between 9am-12pm each morning and you can round off your trip with a visit to Waiheke’s newest brewery restaurant, The Heke on Onetangi Road. Ask for a special rate for festival visitors.

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.

Jassy Dean Trust Founder, Greg Dean says, “We are so happy to be able to put on this wonderful event again this year. We are so proud of what it delivers for our community and the money it raises for sick children and their families living on the island”
