Be there to experience;

  • sculptures from off the farm, about and of the land,
  • makers and creatives,
  • sculptors, artists,
  • fine art from local professional artists,
  • musicians,
  • farmers and lifestylers,

  • shop and browse market stalls for goods that have been made, baked, grown or bred in northern Manawatu,
  • family entertainment,
  • vote for the People’s Choice Rural Sculpture,

City parents can expect to lose children to pony rides and wool dives. House and garden divas will haggle over who gets to load the 4x4 with some really big sculptures. Cars will leave packed with craft goodies.

Not something you'd wanna miss.
