Hunterville Huntaway Festival
Saturday, November 1, 2014 (All day)

Hunterville Huntaway Festival was thought up at the local pub by some local folk. Since then the country styled event has continued to grow and grow into what it is today and is the only event of its kind in the North Island. It attracts between 4000 - 5000 visitors to our Festival every year. A family day filled with lots of entertainment and fun. You wont want to miss it with every age group covered. For the young children we have two shows from Captain Jelly and Balloons Funtastic as well as a bouncy castle.
