Experience the best of North Canterbury at this year's action-packed Winter Festival. There is plenty to enjoy for the whole family - a full-day town festival with delicious food, great music, activities galore and a farmers market full of stalls.
Like many things in Canterbury, the Winter Festival was born out of the earthquakes. Our little country town has undergone quite the transformation and we started this event in 2016 to celebrate the new-look Rangiora.
Us North Canterbury folk know how to throw a good party and the Festival has now become an annual event to showcase what's on offer in our colourful town.
