Proudly organised by the Waitomo District Council, the Great NZ Muster is an annual event unique to the King Country. A cross between a country fair and a rural extravaganza, it truly is kiwi heartland at its best.
Te Kuiti’s main street is transformed with displays and specials to capture your attention. Sheep themed signs decorate shop fronts, sidewalks are lined with fantastic products, food stalls, arts and crafts displays and rural exhibits. Everywhere you look, there’s something happening.
Enjoy the entertainment on the main stage with performers showcasing their skills. There are exciting competitions, talented performers, and sheep mustering skills on display.
The New Zealand Shearing Championships 2020 will be held from the 2nd to the 4th April 2020, at the Les Munro Centre King Street East Te Kuiti.
