Thank you to everyone who visited our gardens and attended our events for the 2021 Taranaki Garden Festival.

Openlands Country Fair - CANCELLED

The Country Fair is an event for the whole family. Enjoy a relaxing day of food, music and hand-crafted quality goods for sale from local stall holders.

Not only can you peruse the many craft stalls, visitors can also take a stroll around Openlands, a garden of colour, spreading trees, winding paths, a shadehouse and picturesque church.

Purchase your lunch from the food alley or bring a picnic and take in the views of the mountain from the church lawn. Come along to experience a genuine country fair with something for everyone.

Plenty of off-road parking.
