A message from our committee: We are dedicated to providing the ultimate destination for gardening enthusiasts with a budget friendly day out, regrettably costs to run our event have increased substantially. Therefore, this year we will be charging an entry fee of $5 for adults, under 16 years free. By implementing a $5 entry and the very generous support from our sponsors the funds we raise will allow us to remain a not-for-profit event and be sustainable, into the foreseeable future. 
We have 3 food courts positioned conveniently around the grounds with each food court providing table and chairs seating for around 100 people at each area, as well as some seating at the old Esk Railway Station and the large grassy hill opposite which is a popular spot for families to sit and let the kids play on the hill while the parents relax in the lovely winter sun and take in the view. We pride ourselves on offering multiple comfortable areas to relax and recharge and immerse yourself in the country atmosphere and hospitality of Esk.
To keep everyone fed and happy we source a variety of different food vendors both sweet and savory, hot and cold options. With over 14 food vendors throughout the event, you’re sure to find something to suit your taste buds!. All vendors are encouraged to offer options for vegetarians and vegans as well as those who require gluten free or dairy free diet. You will find vendors have notations on our stallholders list when it is announced to what options they cater for.  Also, to satisfy your caffeine cravings we have 5 coffee vendors, so you won’t have to look far.
Yes we love dogs, please keep them on a lead and under supervision at all times.
Groups arriving via coach that book 30 or more, can receive reduced entry at $4 each. All you have to do to get this deal is book your coach in with us and pre-pay, via bank deposit or cheque. VIP Bus stop with greeting hostess for a smooth experience.

We are a community non-profit organization, that focus on general gardening, plants of all kinds, and anything associated with gardening. Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month, at the Somerset Civic Centre 35 Esk-Hampton Road Esk, where we have guest speakers, monthly raffle, display table and plant sales.
To hold a not-for-profit event to showcase Esk and the Somerset Region. To promote the enjoyment of gardening, friendship and a healthy lifestyle through gardening. Money raised is used to pay expenses relating to the fair with the balance of funds being held over to help cover costs for the next year’s event.
The Valley of the Lakes Garden Club held the first Esk Garden Fair on June 18th, 2016.  Since then, the Esk Garden Fair has gone from strength to strength winning the Somerset event of the year in 2017, 2019, 2021, 2022 and 2023.
