Shemozzle – Hunterville Huntaway Festival
Hunterville Huntaway Festival (first run in 1998) was thought up at the local pub by some local folk – Tony Theed, Richard Horrocks and Thomas Powell. They suggested a run like the Cardrona Shepherd’s run in South Island but it was quickly pointed out we don’t have a mountain, but we do have a steep hill. The event evolved from there and since then the country styled event has continued to grow and grow into what it is today and it is the only event of its kind in the North Island – it is trademarked so no one else is permitted to use our name or style. It attracts between 4000 – 5000 visitors to our Festival every year. A family day filled with lots of entertainment and fun. You won’t want to miss it with every age group covered.
