Pilgrims Garden Festival

Sunday 24 July 2022

Enjoy the stunning Mount Ephraim Estate this summer at the Pilgrims Garden Festival on Sunday 24 July 2022.

Pilgrims is pleased to welcome you to the Pilgrims Garden Festival. A perfect family day out this summer, set in the stunning grounds of Mount Ephraim Gardens in Faversham.

Back for a second year, the Pilgrims Garden Festival will be a celebration of local food and drink producers, plant sellers and traders. There will be a range of stalls for you to browse as you make your way through our vibrant market area. The demo area will have inspirational sessions for you to enjoy, before heading to our new bar area, stocked with locally produced drinks.

Younger visitors will be kept entertained in our children’s corner with craft making, games, a magic show, face painting and lots more. The whole family can then relax at our tea party, enjoying sweet treats or a fresh BBQ.

Each ticket to the Pilgrims Garden Festival includes entry to Mount Ephraim Gardens where you can explore 10 acres of enchanting Edwardian gardens and terraces filled with fragrant roses, leading you to a small lake and woodland area.


Help Pilgrims Hospices to support people across east Kent who are living with an incurable illness.

Tickets are limited so be quick to ensure you don’t miss out!
