Lanark FlowerFest

About Lanark FlowerFest

FlowerFest celebrates the horticultural heritage of the Clyde Valley. The valley, known for growing tomatoes until imports became cheaper, is now a destination for gardeners throughout the Central Belt, with its flourishing range of Garden Centres.

The Royal Burgh of Lanark lies at the head of the Garden Valley, and boasts Castlebank Park, perched above the River Clyde, with the restored Castlebank Gardens and newly developed Horticultural Centre, which is also home to Lanark in Bloom – custodians of the town’s many beautiful hanging baskets and planters.

The theme for this year’s FlowerFest 2019 is The Women’s Football World Cup, which takes place in France this June, and for which Scotland’s Ladies Team have qualified.

Across the three days of the festival there is a huge line-up of attractions for all ages to enjoy, including: Garden Centre displays, Schools' and Nurseries' Planter Competition, Gardeners' Question Time, musical entertainment from local groups, high-quality craft marquee, food & drink outlets, local producer demonstrations, tractor rides, yoga tasters and much, much more. The Tolbooth will also be hosting a botanical art exhibition from 6th – 17th May 2019.

Local residents can look out for the full FlowerFest 2019 Programme, which will be posted through their doors over the coming weeks.

A free shuttle bus will be running to and from Castlebank Park to various points in Lanark.

FlowerFest is presented by Lanark Community Development Trust, with generous support from the Border Biscuits Community Support Fund.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Lanark FlowerFest are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
