Spring Fair and Plant Sale 2022

Harcourt Arboretum | Seasonal Event | Half day ticket

Immerse yourself in wonderful surroundings, enjoy some cheerful music and taste delicious local produce at our Spring Fair! Harcourt Arboretum is made up of 130 acres containing the best collection of trees in Oxfordshire, with some of the oldest redwoods in the UK. At this time of year, fresh buds bloom, animals awaken and the Arboretum flowers with bluebells and snowdrops.

There will be a selection of food and drink including a pig roast, ice-cream and vegetarian and vegan options. Children can have a go at craft activities and meet some farmyard animals. In addition to this, we will have a fantastic selection of plants for sale, which have been specially propagated by Oxford Botanic Garden.

The Spring Fair and Plant Sale is part of Fascination of Plants Day 2022, with events taking place across the world throughout the whole month of May. This will showcase the importance of plant science for nutritious food, horticulture, forestry and the production of plant-based non-food products such as paper, timber, chemicals, energy and pharmaceuticals.


Please note that University staff, Friends and Annual Pass holders will now be asked to pay the standard entry price to attend seasonal fairs at the Garden and Arboretum.

As parking on site is limited, we recommend planning your journey in advance.
