The first Saturday in March, Taihape hosts the iconic Gumboot Day®.
Our next Taihape Gumboot Day® Family Festival is planned for Saturday 7th March from 10am till 3pm.
A truly family fun day, a unique event started in 1985, it's right in the heart of New Zealand’s rural countryside.
Gumboot Day is Taihape showcasing what we do well, and throwing the gumboot is only half the excitement.
Not to be missed...Yes, gumboot throwing IS a sport!

This year’s winner of the variety of competition
