Wairarapa Vintage Machinery Clubs Harvest Rally

A&P Showground, Chester Road Clareville, Carterton 3rd - 4th Feb '18

In February 2018, visitors to the Wairarapa can discover how wheat was harvested 100 years ago with man power and horse power during the Wairarapa Vintage Machinery Club’s Harvest Rally. This fun, family

friendly event held every four years, is being staged over Waitangi Weekend 2018 (February 3rd and 4th) at the Clareville Showgrounds, located a few kilometres north of Carterton. See magnificent draft horses

harvest a wheat crop with a binder and watch the Clayton Shuttleworth mill working. See displays of vintage trucks, tractors, stationary engines as well as farming memorabilia from private collections. The star

attraction of the show will be the rare Foden steam wagon, which will make its return to the Wairarapa after an almost 60-year absence.
