The 2011 Wairarapa Spring and Rugby Festival will see arts, sports, entertainment and the popular Carterton Daffodil Carnival each take a turn at being centre stage. The Festival, which will run from September 10 -- October 9, is being run in conjunction with the REAL New Zealand Festival held during the Rugby World Cup 2011. With Wairarapa preparing to host the Georgian rugby team and its entourage for part of the six week Tournament, several events -- such as next weekend's Rugby, Haka, Hangi Festival in Carterton, have been designed to showcase the region's proud rugby history and warm hospitality. The Festival will also see local businesses and organisations offering discount vouchers for attractions. The Festival will kick off in style with the Rugby, Haka and Hangi Festival (Sept 9-10) at the Carterton Rugby Club. The Wairarapa Bush Rugby Union and Ng ti Kahungunu Iwi will treat visitors to a friendly game of rugby, lessons in how to do the haka and offer traditional M ori food. Gretchen says this will be a wonderful chance for visitors to meet and interact with local rugby fans and to learn about the real people at the grassroots of rugby in New Zealand. "As an added bonus you'll enjoy Wairarapa-Bush versus Poverty Bay in their Heartland provincial rugby game," she says. The Carterton Daffodil Carnival (September 11) coincides with the first weekend of Rugby World Cup when Wales play South Africa in Wellington. This event steeped in tradition boasts dozens of stalls featuring local crafts, art and children's entertainment as well as the time- honoured tradition of picking daffodils at Middle Run, a historic property at Gladstone. This year's Carnival will also see the welcome return of the Daffodil Express, a historic steam train that will bring visitors from Wellington and the Hutt Valley over to Carterton for the day. People attending the Carterton Daffodil Carnival will also be able to visit the award winning historic Carterton Railway Museum with free entry on Sunday 11 September. As an additional experience there will be a chance for families to enjoy a short ride behind the steam locomotive between Carterton and Masterton. This train will depart Carterton at 10.55am and have a stopover in Masterton before returning. Join the locals at Masterton's Queen Elizabeth Park Oval for the best of Kiwi hospitality on September 24 with The Big Welcome Barbeque. Celebrate the visit of the Georgian national rugby team to the Wairarapa with an old fashioned barbeque, local produce, local wines and traditional Hangi food. Other key Festival events include Mt Holdsworth Open Day (September 18); Ostara Alban Eilir, an ancient ceremony and Tales of the Spring Equinox (September 24); The Life Flight Fun Run/Walk at Henley Lake in Masterton (Sunday 25 September), raising money for Ronald McDonald House in Wellington; the New Rags Market (October 1) which specialises in handcrafted, pre-loved or up-cycled arts, crafts and clothing; the Stonehenge Aotearoa Spring Fair (October 1); the TK Spring Market (Sept 18, 25 and Oct 9); the Wairarapa Wines Vintage Wings and Wine (Oct 8, 9) where people can enjoy a meandering "journey" through aviation history while enjoying the very best Wairarapa wine and food and the Greytown Rugby Festival (Oct 7-9) which will see a series of rugby games played at the Greytown RC and an opportunity to visit the historic Papawai Marae. The Wairarapa Spring and Rugby Festival and the community hosting of Georgia is supported by Destination Wairarapa, the Masterton District Council and the Trust House Charitable Trust.
