Admire and be inspired by the gardening and artistic talent of the Bay of Plenty

We celebrate the beauty and diversity of our region’s gardens and the creativity of talented artists. Get ready to explore the wonderful Bay of Plenty and visit your choice of over 60 beautiful gardens and meet more than 100 magnificent artists. Our artists will display their works throughout gardens and galleries located around Tauranga and the Western Bay of Plenty.

You will also experience fascinating landscape gardens, exhibitors, live music, tasty food and beverages and the amazing Festival Gallery at our festival hub “Bloom in the Bay”.
