The 2020 International Rose Garden Festival Morwell will be held on November 14 and 15 – as a hybrid of an online, virtual event with a night lights installation at the garden.
Online, visitors will be able to navigate a map of the Morwell Centenary Rose Garden and click on events and activities.
Workshops, music, children’s entertainment, stalls and garden talks will be run online as free, interactive events.
People will be able to comment, ask questions, and take part in polls, workshops and masterclasses all from the comfort of their homes – and even buy goods from stallholders as though they were there. The festival will be viewable on a phone, tablet or computer via the festival website.
Participation is free but people must register on the festival website beforehand.
The first 100 Australian residents to register will receive a festival showbag packed with goodies from local suppliers
