Arts and Music in the Gardens is the HCP’s largest annual fundraiser and has become one of Victoria’s finest art events. It is a magical weekend that entwines music, art, food, and people in an incredible award-winning garden. With over 50 vendors, including artists, musicians, and artisanal food producers, visitors will have the opportunity to explore as well as be entertained. As you wander through the gardens and view the art, you will never be far from music as some of Victoria’s finest musicians entertain you throughout the day. In our pavilion there will be a variety of different artisanal food vendors, as well as HCP info. Sandwiches, smokies and snacks will be available. There will also be members of the Victoria Floral Artists’ Guild, with some amazing floral art. Look for all of their locations in the gardens and choose your favourite! Activities will be available for your little ones. Stop by the children’s area to see what surprises await.
