Nelmac Garden Marlborough has been described as New Zealand's premier garden festival. A spring time celebration of Marlborough's stunning landscape, it showcases the very best the region has to offer with a series of garden tours, garden themed workshops and social events. We look forward to welcoming you to Marlborough.
Tonnes to see and do
The full-day and half-day garden tours encompass everything from compact designer gardens in the heart of Blenheim to breath-taking country estates. Take the opportunity to brush up on your skills and horticultural knowledge by learning from New Zealand and international gardening experts.
The festival culminates with the Garden Fete held in the picturesque Seymour Square, with over 200 stall holders offering the very best New Zealand produce. Entrance to the Fete is free so bring the family and enjoy a full day's entertainment.
The Committee of Nelmac Garden Marlborough, along with our team of volunteers, will do everything possible to ensure festival attendees come away inspired and motivated by all they see and do in our beautiful province.
Taking Care of your Enviroment
