Following the success of the inaugural Grow Ōtautahi, event organisers have announced 2022 dates for the popular Christchurch Garden Festival.
Grow will return to the Christchurch Botanic Gardens, with entry still free to everyone, over three days from March 18 to 20 next year.
Festival Director Sandi MacRae says excitement is already building around the 2022 festival, with sponsors and visitors to the 2021 event sharing their favourite parts of the show and coming up with new ideas for next year.
“We were absolutely thrilled to welcome approximately 25,000 guests to the festival in March this year. Feedback has been so encouraging, and we are now in full planning mode, with the aim of bringing a bigger and better festival to the people of Christchurch.”
She says the organisers want to build on the community, education and sustainability aspects of the show for 2022.
The charitable trust behind the festival has a long-term vision for Grow that aims to see it expand into the central city using other venues and city restaurants to share what is great about growing in Christchurch.
