Back again in 2021! Same awesome venue at Rakaia Gardens.

Start your Christmas shopping early at boutique stalls from well known and unique NZ businesses and enjoy exploring 6 acres of beautiful gardens. Take a break to have a bite to eat for lunch and enjoy the music, or take in a cooking demonstration. Stalls will feature jewellery and accessories, housewares, clothing, flowers, plants and garden supplies, art, eco products, gourmet foods and great gift shopping amongst the trees in a country setting. Cooking demonstrations and great lunch options with live music to enjoy.

The garden is 6 acres - with wide lawn paths linking each area together with rhododendrons, camellias, thousands of annuals, perennials and roses. An idyllic boardwalk meanders through a huge area dedicated to NZ natives surrounding a tranquil pond.
