Crookwell Garden Festival 2016
The 2016 Crookwell Garden Festival will be held over the weekend of Saturday, 5th and Sunday 6th of November, 2016.
At this time of year visitors can enjoy roses blooming as well as the beauty of flowering trees and cold-climate plants all set within the wonderful rolling green hills of the Upper Lachlan Shire in NSW, only 45km north-west of Goulburn and an hour from Canberra.
As with our highly successful inaugural Crookwell Garden Festival held last year, we will have a good variety of gardens open for viewing by visitors, both within the township of Crookwell and in the nearby countryside.
A popular feature of last year’s Festival was the Garden Lover’s Market, and we’ll be running it again on Saturday, 5th November at St. Bartholomew’s church hall and grounds in Denison Street, Crookwell.
As with the 2015 Crookwell Garden Festival, 25% of proceeds from the 2016 Festival will go towards a local charity.
Details of the gardens are available on the gardens page of our website: Crookwell Gardens Festival
Given the popularity of the 2015 Festival, we suggest intending visitors for 2016 book their accommodation well in advance. Visit the Upper Lachlan Shire website for your options: Visit Uppper Lachlan Shire
