Flavours of Fingal Gardening & Horticultural Show is organised by Fingal Horticultural Society (Swords) with Malahide, Naul & Balbriggan Gardening Clubs.

Increased Prize Fund for 2023

In the Horticulture Marquee there will be over 80 competition classes for Flowers, Pot Plants, Vegetables, Fruit, Home Baking, Handcrafts, Flower Arranging and special Children's Classes under 9yrs and under 15yrs. We also have 6 qualifier competitions for All-Ireland Championships in Vegetables & Home Baking to be held later at shows in Tullamore, Virginia, Castleblayney & Tydavnet.

There will also be a wide selection of Floral Art Demonstrations, Gardening Demonstrations, Seed Sowing, Herb Growing, Hanging Basket & Container Gardening, Plant Propagation, Gardening Marquee Treasure Hunt, and all-day Gardening Advice, plus Childrens Corner with free plants, and seed sowing to take home and grow on.
So, if you think that you can grow the Best Vegetables & Flowers in Fingal or if you would like to be the Best Baker in Fingal come along and join us at Flavours…entry to all competitions is FREE, with great prizes to be won.

The Competition Classes are open to everyone, and we especially encourage first time exhibitors who will be assisted with their entries by members of the Fingal gardening clubs. A Perpetual Silver Salver plus a cash prize of €50, sponsored by Fingal Council will be awarded to the Best Exhibit in Sweet Pea, Cut Flowers & Pot Plants, Vegetables & Fruit, Home Baking and Hand Crafts.
