Garden Route Expo


Our Story

Expect an all-new Garden Route Family Experiences (formerly known as the Garden Route 4×4 Expo), where we’re bigger and better than ever before! Our journey began with a simple yet ambitious goal: to create an unparalleled opportunity for the entire family. From kiddies to adults, our event offers a shopping experience that caters to everyone’s tastes and interests.

A Fusion of Experiences
Our event is a delightful fusion of the adventurous outdoors, the elegance of wine, the warmth of home and decor, the creativity of arts and crafts, and the sheer joy of kiddies joining in on our adventure. It’s an event that celebrates the diversity of interests within families, offering something special for each member.

Our Evolution
Our roots trace back to the inception of the Outdoor show. In 2021, we proudly welcomed the UniQ Home Expo to our family, and since then, we’ve been expanding our horizons. Each year, we introduce a new addition to our lineup, enriching the experience and diversity we offer.

Mark your calendars and get ready to be inspired at the Garden Route Family Festival!

This year was a blast, but we want to make 2025's experience even better! Share your thoughts and help us improve. Fill out our quick survey and let us know what you loved and what could use a little extra shine. Your feedback is the key to our success!
