The Picton Maritime Festival festival runs for two days!
Friday is the day we invite the locals to perform. This year we have all ages performing from 7 year old's through to 80+.
Saturday is the free to enter family filled fun day where families can meet up and enjoy watching or participating in the events that run through the day. The Marlborough Lines Treasure Island for the little ones. The Creative Communities children's workshop will be running from Wednesday 20th. Please see entry forms on the website.
On the Interislander Stage, we have a variety of performers for young and old starting with the Queen Charlotte College Kapa Haka opening the event.
This year we have added another competition - build a dinghy. This is being run by the Clinker and Classic Boat Society under the leadership of Bill Pettigrew. The very competitive mussel float rafts competition are always a must to watch or participate in - teams of four.
The build a raft competition will be once again staged on the Old Railway Station platform starting at 11 am - registrations for all will be taken at the Crafar Crouch Info tent from 11 am.
The Craft stalls will be situated at the Town Basin (across from Oxley's Bar & Kitchen) from 11 am. The Youth Trust climbing wall (free) will also be for situated on the paved area in front of Wilderness Tours.
So much more to see and do.
