What’s the festival all about?

What’s the festival all about?

There’s always a load of activities, visual delights and opportunities to learn, grow and simply be entertained during the Nannup Flower and Garden Festival.

the theme for 2018 was Getting Creative in the Garden, with a host of activities, talks and hands on presentations to inspire your creative talents!

Nannup wholeheartedly welcomed  gardening celebrity Costa Georgiadis – the man with the unmistakable beard, and most recognisable smile. Costa had visitors to the Nannup Flower & Garden Festivals’ 4-day extravaganza in fits of laughter with his entertaining antics  across the festival – both adults and kids alike.

Costa’s message of sustainability, conservation, the environment, education, love, happiness, permaculture, and community is one that resonates with many gardeners.   

Gardening darlings Sabrina Hahn and Deryn Thorpe wandered through local gardens, taking tours along the lush banks of the spectacular Blackwood River. ‘Meet the Chefs’ Guy Jeffreys, Alysha Sladden and Mark Pipkin were back by popular demand whipping up delicious meals with ingredients harvested straight from the garden.

Costa, along with local expert Dr. Bob Longmore and all-time favorites’ Deryn Thorpe and Steve Wood teamed for some awesome Q&As sessions in the Main Marquee.-
