Wakkerstroom Open Gardens and Rose Show

10 and 11 November 2018

Wakkerstroom will be holding its second Open Gardens and Rose Show on the weekend of the 10th and 11th of November.

This year, the “Market @ the Corner” will be held together with the open gardens and rose show.

The market, on Saturday the 10th will include artisan stalls, craft gin, live music, delicious foods, entertainment for children, including a puppet show and face painting, to mention a few.

The theme is “artisan foods” and “going back to basics”, including organic and mindful living and picnicking in the gardens to enjoy your purchases.

The market will be held at the premises of The Garret, spilling over into the Red Building, on van Riebeeck Street, through the gardens of both premises and will flow into the pretty garden of the new Thyme Out restaurant.

The Rose Show will be open to the public and visitors on Saturday 10th November from 11h00 onwards for viewing, at Runnymede Iris Farm, 247 Uys Street, Wakkerstroom.

Three rose judges will judge the show: Sheenagh Harris, Chairperson of the Knysna Rose Society, assisted by Gill Wilson and Gail Birss of the Midlands Rose Society.
