2017 Crookwell Garden Weekend: 'An experience I will never forget'
Perfect spring weather was the backdrop to the third Crookwell Garden Festival on 11 and 12 November.
Now a major event on Crookwell’s calendar, a record 1500 visitors were estimated to have seen the open gardens, which featured roses, perennials, deciduous and native trees, unique garden designs and sculptures in abundance.
Locals supported the festival in great numbers, and there were also lots of visitors from further afield including Sydney, the southern highlands, the central west, the south coast, Canberra, Victoria and South Australia. Several garden enthusiast groups came by bus to enjoy the festival.
The Garden Lovers Market on the Saturday was a huge success, with stallholders reporting strong sales and vowing to return next year.
The Crookwell Garden Festival committee thanks all those who helped to make the event a success, from the many local volunteers to the local council, market stallholders, sponsors and school students. Most of all, the festival would not be possible without the enthusiastic and committed garden owners and the many visitors who come to enjoy our gorgeous gardens.
The committee will be donating 25 per cent of the ticket sales to the Crookwell Community Trust. Fifty per cent will be divided between the garden owners in acknowledgement of the cost and effort in preparing their gardens for opening, and 25 per cent will go towards planning and running next year's event.
