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.
