Saturday 23rd March in Taihape from 10am till 3pm

A truly family fun day, a unique event started in 1985 its right in the heart of New Zealand’s rural countryside. Gumboot Day is Taihape showcasing what we do well! Throwing the gumboot is only half the excitement. All ages are encouraged to enter and this year we are hosting the World Boot Throwing Championships! Not to be Missed……..Yes, gumboot throwing IS a sport!

Held at the historical Memorial Park it pays to be early, entry is by Koha (gold coin)

Come along and enjoy Taihape’s hospitality, take part in the many activities on offer including workshops (woodwork, rock painting, decorate a gumboot workshop, soap carving), motorbike rides, pony rides, bouncy castles, as well as the market and craft stalls.
