About the Garden Route Expo

Welcome to the official website for the annual Garden Route Expo & Outdoor Show. Our goal has always been to create an opportunity for everyone nationally, to join in on our adventure. This year we will host our very own UniQ Home Expo which will be the first of its kind in the Garden Route. This exciting addition will include interior and exterior home decor exhibitions and a host of ideas and activities for the DIY enthusiast, professional decorator and project manager.

We have created a platform where all the exhibitors, sponsors and vendors can advertise their gear, products and businesses in a friendly and inviting environment. Our main organisers saw the opportunity to present an outdoor festival that is open to the public. The festival takes place on the Bartelsfontein farm, situated 7 km’s on the R327, in direction of Herbertsdale.

Mossel Bay is well-known for various festivals throughout the year, thus we chose this location. We wanted to create another opportunity for the community to thrive in and have fun with a concept unlike any other, locally available. We believe our Outdoor Show will continue to grow in attendance and support with every passing year. 2019 hosted the very first Garden Route Expo and we gained experience and expertise from our previous events. This experience is of great value to build momentum for the future. We took everything into consideration regarding planning the event and the layout of the farm, feedback from our vendors, visitors and sponsors and look forward to an improved experience for sponsors, vendors and visitors alike.

This year we have exciting new performers on the celebrated entertainment stage, an improved Kids Zone area and a variety of self-catering, and fully equipped camping accomodation for all to enjoy! With user-friendly online vendor applications and affordable ticket pricing, we plan to make this a seamless process to save time, ease congestion at the gates and ensure a safe, relaxed experience for vendors and visitors alike. We take great pleasure knowing that several charity organizations will benefit from this 4×4 expo, due to donations. More information on our 2021 charities will follow soon.
