This year, you will be able to experience a different rose fair celebration for 2020. To respect our changing times, you can still experience and participate in Greyton and its Spring beauty. You can visit nine open gardens or just watch from your armchair because we are bringing you some of your favourites in a ‘virtual’ format which will appear daily on the greytonrosefair Facebook page from 17th October, until the last two weeks of October.
This year, you will be able to visit some of our breath-taking gardens mapped around the village during the last two weekends of October.
+ Entrance price and a Map to open gardens will be available to purchase for R100 which will give two people entry to all the gardens. Available at Greyton Tourism, Main Street in the village.
+ Opening Times: (subject to change)
Saturday/Sunday from 10h00 to 15h00
Weekends of 24/25 October and 31/1 November
+ Open gardens sponsored by Overberg Asset Management.
+ Please ensure you wear a mask when entering the gardens.
+ All proceeds go towards our local fund raising for children.
Because we cannot hold our annual Rose Show, you are invited to send your beautiful blooms to our email address. The best of the best will be displayed on our Facebook page and website for your own boasting rights, so please send in your photographs with your name included in your submission.
+ We will be posting more details about the exhibition nearer the last two weeks of October.
+ Please follow our Facebook page for continual updates (and remember to "Like it").
During the last two weeks of October there will be some interesting videos, mainly from some of our local treasures like Marshall Rinquest talking about his food gardens project and his passion for teaching children to grow their own food.
The programme of videos will be posted on the rosefair FB.
The videos will be running on our Facebook page greytonrosefair.com during the last two weeks of October, please watch and "Like" them.
