Isle of Wight Spring Art & Garden Fair

Over 18 & 19 May, the enormously popular Isle of Wight Spring Art & Garden Fair will feature a huge range of quality exhibitors in the beautiful grounds of Northwood House in Cowes. 

Get plants and equipment for the garden, see some of the best local artists from across the Island in the Art Showcase and enjoy lots of things to see and do over the two-day event. 


What's On

Take time to leisurely browse several marquees of quality hand-made craft, produce and other artisan retailers.

In addition, the Royal Horticultural Society will be welcomed to The Isle of Wight Spring Art & Garden Fair for the first time. Several of their top plant and gardening experts will be on hand to answer questions and provide information and advice to any budding garden enthusiasts! Fair visitors can also listen to a host of interesting guest speakers in the new Roots & Shoots Talks Tent.

Children can enjoy free art & craft activities, seed planting and storytelling at the Imagination Station marquee, with a treasure hunt and prizes. The Spring Fair arena will feature magic shows and entertainment with David Randini and displays from various dog agility groups.

Also enjoy live music at the tea tent, Pimm’s and cream teas on the lawn and a huge display of vintage tractors and cars over both days. Island chainsaw carving supremo Paul Sivell will also be carving a magnificent timber sculpture, which will be available for auction at the end of the event.
