What won the 2017 Somerset "Event of the Year"? It was the Esk Garden and Lifestyle Fair and I agree that it was a great event. I'm excited about this year's fair as it's back and it's bigger and better and more beautiful. All you green-thumbs should make a day trip to "Picture-Esk"; you won't be disappointed.

The fair is not just about the special stallholders and pretty products and the diverse range of plants for sale, although they will be back of course. There are also free lectures and demonstrations. There are three very talented speakers this year.

Apart from the impressive speakers, here are my picks of the Fair:
The wacky Scarecrow Contest
The huge selection of garden art and sculptures
Heaps of good quality stallholders, especially the plant stalls
Delish food trucks and specialty coffees.

The fair is on Saturday 15 June from 8.00 am to 3.00 pm at the Old Railway Station, Pipeliner Park, Esk-Hampton Road in Esk. The fair is exceptional value as entry is by gold coin donation. There is also free off-street parking. For more details, click here. See you there.
The Esk Garden Fair is a fantastic fair to attend. Heaps of atmosphere with the scarecrow competition and lots of different stalls to keep you looking. Well worth a day trip to ESK to see the fair and the local surrounds. One of the best fairs I have ever attended.
Congratulations, May, on 3rd place in the 'green' comp. Excellent photos and Esk looks like a great place to visit anytime, 'Fair' or not (googled it). A great pity it is a little more than a day trip from WA :)
