Come and celebrate the harvest season in true country fashion.
The Marton Harvest Festival is our day to celebrate our heritage, our culture and our identity as a rural New Zealand town. It is our day to embrace our harvest in the myriad forms it takes in our region, an opportunity to let our hair down, picnic together, enjoy the music and find all the gifts we need for the family and treats we want for ourselves.
With over 160 quality stalls, food, music and fun you will get everything you would expect at a harvest fair, good food, great stalls and fun entertainment and activities - and then some things you didn't expect - heard of goose herding? Well, you soon will. It is a day for fun, flair and families. Come along and join us for the day.
Be sure to take a moment to check out the vintage displays, these machines were instrumental in forging our great town. With live Bluegrass tunes with the Tinsel Town Paupers, the ambience of the fair will be a positively toe tapping event.
