Located in the heart of the Wairarapa, Carterton’s popular Festival offers an abundance of activities ranging from the famous Daffodil picking at Middlerun, Street Markets, Horse Drawn Surrey Rides, the Big Wai Art Sale in the Events Centre and loads more.

What is now for many a time-honoured tradition, the festival includes the picking of daffodils at Middle Run, a historic property at Gladstone. There will be free buses throughout the day starting at 10am from corner of Broadway and Masson Street, to shuttle people to and from Middlerun. A small fee is charged to pick the daffodils with all proceeds going to the local charities Plunket and St John.

The festival’s Street Markets boasts dozens of stalls featuring local arts & crafts, yummy treats, children’s rides and live entertainment.

This year’s Festival will also see the welcome return of the Daffodil Express, an historic steam train that brings visitors from Wellington. Operated by Steam Incorporated, the train will depart Wellington Railway Station and arrive in Carterton at 10:40.

There will also be a chance to enjoy a short ride on the Daffodil Express between Carterton and Masterton.

For further information on this contact the Carterton Railway Museum, Don Hodge, 0272647421 or Phillip 063786268.

The Festival is organised by the Carterton District Council. The Street Markets are proudly supported & coordinated by the Lions Club of Carterton.
