Daffodils, markets and steam train rides? It must be spring! Celebrate the annual fun-filled Carterton Daffodil Festival on Sunday 9 September 2018.
Catch the steam train from Wellington to Carterton, pick armfuls of daffs at historic Middlerun, and enjoy all the other events in Carterton town centre - from the street markets to Horse Drawn Surrey Rides.
There will be free buses throughout the day starting at 9.45am to shuttle people to and from Middlerun. A small fee is charged to pick the daffodils with all proceeds going to the local Plunket and St John.
The steam-powered 'Daffodil Express' train makes a special return trip from Wellington for the day, and also makes a short trip from Carterton to Masterton.
While in Carterton check out the Big Wai Art Sale at the Carterton Events Centre from 9am -5pm where over 1500 artworks, mainly from local artists, are for sale with demonstrations from working artists as well!
