Given the charitable status of the festival, Grow Ōtautahi, Christchurch Garden Festival relies on funds from grants, sponsors, and exhibitors to generate the income needed to produce the event. As it is free for visitors to attend the festival, partnerships with key stakeholders are vital for the event to succeed.
It is important to the Trust that the event remains free for the public to attend (a koha/gold coin donation may be charged). This enables the festival to be accessible to the wider community and supports the Trust’s vision for creating an event that Canterbury residents feel a strong connection with.
Lincoln University supports the Trust with their overall vision for the festival and they have confirmed their support at the highest level by committing to being the Presenting Partner for the next 3-years. This alignment provides a strong foundation for building upon the educational goals of the event and supports the growth of the festival into the future.
