The Wairarapa Balloon Festival organisers have made the difficult decision to pare back the event to ensure parts of the festival can go ahead under alert level Red. The great news is that the daily ascensions from all 5 Wairarapa locations can still go ahead under any alert level. These ascensions make for some awe inspiring entertainment for the whole family, which can be enjoyed from a nearby park, or if you live locally, the comfort of your own backyard. Please see their website www.nzballoons.co.nz for more details about the 5 day balloon extravaganza!
Unfortunately the “Night Glow” ticketed event that was planned for Saturday 16 April has had to be cancelled due to the Red level restrictions. For Night Glow ticket holders you have the option to transfer your tickets to next year’s event (Saturday 8 April, 2023), donate your tickets to the event, or get a refund. Please see details below. Please note if we have not received a response from you by 10am 11/02/22 your ticket will automatically be refunded, less any booking fees.
Camping will still be available for the extended Easter period (12 – 19 April, 2022) at the Clareville Showgrounds. Your camping tickets will be refunded from Eventfinda so you will need to rebook this directly through Clareville Showgrounds, please contact them by email email@example.com, or phone 06 3798124.
Thanks again for your support, and we apologise for any inconvenience. We look forward welcoming the full festival programme back in 2023!
