Bay of Plenty Garden and Art Festival

Bloom in the Bay

Bay of Plenty Floral Art Society

The Bay of Plenty Area of the Floral Art Society will once again be holding its Designer of Year competition in conjunction with the 2020 Bay of Plenty Garden and Art Festival – Bloom in the Bay. This two-yearly event brings the floral designers of the BOP together to compete against one another for the prestigious title of Designer of the Year and other competition classes. The Bay in Bloom will be the overall floral art theme and will feature beautiful Dutch Flemish designs, traditional designs and contemporary designs, as well as stunning fascinators and necklaces made from plant material. This year – as well as the indoor competition classes – there will be a non-competitive display of exciting outdoor environmental art. The Floral Art Competition day will be Thursday 19th November. The exhibition will be open to the public Friday 19th – Sunday 22nd November
