LEURA GARDEN FESTIVAL & LEURA VILLAGE FAIR: ON OUR HORIZON
Leura Gardens Festival 2017
30 September to 8 October (Fee),
9.30am to 4.30pm For nine days, blossoming and flowering gardens take centre stage. With the Leura Gardens Festival we can go beyond the garden gate and into these beautifully kept gardens. This is Leura's horticultural finery at its best where cottages hide amid a blaze of colour on every residential street. As in past years, the mini-nursery on Watkins Road will sell a wide range of cool climate and native plants. Marking the festival's 53rd year, as in the past, all funds raised will go towards purchasing equipment for the Blue Mountains District ANZAC Memorial Hospital and other Blue Mountains medical foundations.
Leura Village Fair 2017
Sat 7 October 9am–4.30pm
Sun 8 October 9am–3.30pm
Springtime is nature's amphitheatre on a broad scale in Leura. The flowering cherry trees in the centre divider put on a spectacular show in October. Visitors and locals flock to Leura. The Mall is closed to vehicles for the two-day event and the street is a carnival scene with more than 100 stalls. Artisans and artists show off their wares and fresh produce and plants are yours for the choosing. Musicians ply their skills waiting for gold coins and a smile of appreciation. The event is organised by the Leura Village Association, a hard-working group of Leura business women and men. Not to be missed!
