The 2024 New England Garden Festival (NEGF) will be held at the Armidale Racecourse. In the week leading up to the big weekend, Festival activities begin with the NEGF Artisan Trail which is an initiative to connect our local artists in the community with the community.

Local artist studios doors will open to the public providing a unique opportunity for artists to showcase their work, engage with fellow artists and contribute to NEGFs fund raising efforts for our local community.

The big weekend encompasses all those gardening activities that gardeners love to see and do. Stalls, stalls and more stalls with plants, gardening tools and equipment, gardening products, garden sculptures and everything gardeners dream of – and more! Workshops and demonstrations will be available so gardeners can learn and improve their gardening skills and knowledge.

Feature gardens will be open, accessible by environmentally friendly means of transport, the much-loved shuttle buses that operated last year, and by car. Winning gardens in the Armidale Garden Competition categories will also be open so even more for gardeners to admire. Potted garden entries of hanging baskets, succulent gardens, bonsai, fairy and dinosaur gardens will be viewable at the Racecourse. And the icing on the cake — food vans and coffee! All this because of the wonderful volunteer community – thank you!



Event dates for next 12 Months: 2 Nov 2024 | 2 Nov 2024 | 3 Nov 2024 | 3 Nov 2024
