Wairarapa Country Music Festival 2020 Announcement Coming Soon

Take a look at this year’s festival in the video below for a taste of what to expect.

This country music festival is becoming recognised as a weekend full of fun and entertainment and one of the best Country music weekends in New Zealand. Hosted at the beautiful iconic Tauherenikau race course, the Wairarapa racing club once again looks forward to welcoming all our visitors and we have a fantastic line up organised so you can enjoy, relax and take away some fond memories.

In 2019 we had the amazing Bevan Gardiner (of John Denver tribute fame) who alongside James Davy gave a great performance with some of the legends greatest hits and of course plenty of Country Music classics.

Having Bevan join us was a coup for the Wairarapa as he had not played here before and his voice was simply sensational.

Joining Bevan was the ever-popular Marian Burns whose renowned fiddle playing had everyone on their feet dancing and singing. In addition, Twinset, Joy Adams, George and Jocelyn Tuahine and Shane Harvey entertained the crowds over the weekend – what a fantastic lineup.

Mark the date in your diary to visit one of New Zealand’s most beautiful regions and why not take in a few extra days to visit some of our wonderful attractions such Martinborough one of the finest wine making regions in the country or Castlepoint and Cape Palliser whose magnificent rugged coastlines are a must see and of course let’s not forget Masterton who won the most beautiful town and Greytown, the most beautiful small town in New Zealand this year.
