Events in the RegionRSS

The Hurunui district has a rich calendar of events year round.

The local towns really put on a good show when it comes to events. Highlights include the annual North Canterbury Wine and Food Festival in March, The Christmas Country Fete in Waipara (October), Art in a Garden (Hawarden) in October, and a fantastic array of running & mountain bike events in Hanmer Springs. The district also hosts a range of excellent agriculture and pastoral (A & P shows) and sporting events that draw crowds from near and far.
