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 9:45am from corner of Broadway and Masson Street, to shuttle people to and from Middlerun. Daffodils are $4 per bunch and all proceeds going to the local charities Plunket and St John. There is no Eftpos or ATM on site and Middlerun will operate cash only.

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

This 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 10:40am.

You may also book and enjoy a short ride on the Daffodil Express between Carterton and Masterton return.
