FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Rural Fest Wainuiomata “Get set to make a day of it”
Locals and visitors are set to enjoy a taste of “country comes to town” on the 10th of March with what is fast becoming an iconic annual event for Wainuiomata.
Rural Fest Wainuiomata showcases the nostalgic activities associated with country life and will include pony rides, adorable farm animals to pet, sheep shearing, gumboot tossing, a country craft market, as well as an old fashioned bake off and sand saucer competitions.
The event is organised by a steering group made up of Wainuiomata groups including the Wainuiomata Rural Association, Love Wainuiomata and the local Community Hub.
Food will be available for the event including a Hangi, a Sausage Sizzle and no event is quite the same without the favourite donut and coffee carts. Several local food outlets will also be open along Queens Street adjacent to the event.
Locals and those living in the greater Wellington Region are encouraged to “make a day of it” with a visit to the Wainuiomata Art Exhibition being held in the local library and to add in a short walk to the Historic Wainuiomata Dam or a drive to see rugged beauty of the Wainuiomata Coast.
Rural Fest will be taking place at the Queen Street Reserve from 11am to 3pm on Saturday March 10. For more information on the event, including how to enter the bake off, sand saucer competitions and more visit www.ruralfestwainuomata.com
