This year the Festival’s resident gardening celebrity is Costa Georgiadis – the man with the unmistakable beard, and most recognisable smile. Costa will have visitors to the Nannup Flower & Garden Festivals’ 4-day extravaganza in fits of laughter with his entertaining antics live on the main stage. Costa’s message of sustainability, conservation, the environment, education, love, happiness, permaculture, and community is sure to free your inner ‘wild’.

Click here for where to find Costa over the weekend – as well as kids events – including appearances by Costa the Garden Gnome!

Gardening darlings Sabrina Hahn and Deryn Thorpe will be wandering through local gardens and taking tours along the lush banks of the spectacular Blackwood River. ‘Meet the Chefs’ Guy Jeffreys, Alysha Sladden and Mark Pipkin are 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 will team up to answer all your Q&As in the Main Marquee.-
