The Early Bird Special Offer sales for the Bay of Plenty Garden & Art Festival are well and truly on for the month of June with keen festival-goers snapping up the festival pass vouchers.

The festival, which runs from November 17 -20, has Early Bird pricing available for both the Multi-Day Festival Pass and the 1-Day Festival Pass.

“Since we opened sales for this year's Bay of Plenty Garden & Art Festival the response has been amazing with a lot of people from all over New Zealand taking advantage of the offers,” says festival director Marc Anderson.

The Early Bird vouchers will be redeemable for the festival packs in mid-August, with the Multi-Day Festival Pack giving access to the festival for all four days, and the 1-Day Festival Pack giving access to the festival for any one day. Both packs include a festival pass, directory and map.

“We are really excited about delivering this year’s event with more than 30 per cent new gardens and a brand new Art Studio trail to complement the already amazing garden and art trail,” says Marc.

He says Bloom in the Bay, which is the festival hub at Tauranga Racecourse, will be flourishing with exciting installations, a kid zone, art galleries, increased garden and art related trade stalls, a bar, live music, and a speaker series.

The Early Bird prices for the Multi-Day Festival Pass Voucher is $55 and 1-Day Festival Pass Voucher is $35. General ticket sales start July 1 with the 1-Day pass at full price of $40 and Multi-Day pass $65. A service fee applies if purchased online.

The Early Bird sales offer closes 5pm Thursday, June 30, at Palmers Bethlehem, and 11.59pm on Eventfinda. Purchasers receive a voucher to be redeemed for the official Festival Ticket Pack available from August 21, 2022.
