Update: The Waitomo District Council has also decided to cancel The Great NZ Muster for 2020. The event to have been held on April 4 is described as "A cross between a country fair and a rural extravaganza, it truly is kiwi heartland at its best."
The council said the event falls into the "mass gathering" criteria as a free event that is non ticketed, therefore cancelling the event was the right thing to do for our community and all those attending the event.
Ewe will love our annual event!
