The Garden Show and Agri Fair, a core event of the feast day of Saint Augustine, is underway at a ground in Centrio Ayala Mall and at Duaw Kagayan Park in Cagayan de Oro. Resident and visitors of the city can buy plants that are on display in said places. The different species of ornamental house plants and herbs for culinary and medicinal purposes come from growers in the city and other provinces such as Davao.  Participants for the event also include those from different barangays or villages of the city. Those participants have their respective stalls along a road at the city hall. They display fruits and vegetables and other foods that are grown in their barangays.

A place of significance to the event is the Duaw Kagayan Park. However, the park by the river is still in stage of construction. Once completed, it is set to become one of local rendezvous for local residents and visitors.
