Due to the current Covid-19 developments the Kowhai Festival Committee has collectively taken the decision to cancel the Huge Day Out which was scheduled for Sunday, October 18th, 2020.

This decision was not taken lightly. We have worked extremely hard, all the way up till today and even considered re-scheduling for a later date. We would have loved nothing more than celebrating a fun day out with everyone in the Warkworth Town center.
However, we feel it is our responsibility to keep the community safe and we would hate to see an outbreak of Covid-19 during the festival. So after careful consideration regarding the health and safety of our members, participants, exhibitors, volunteers and the wider community we have decided not to proceed with the Huge Day Out this year. We understand this might come as an enormous disappointment to all involved, as well as the local community who were eagerly awaiting this celebration.

We want to reassure everyone that we are committed to continuing the 50 year tradition of this celebration and will do our utmost best to have an amazing Huge Day Out here in Warkworth in October 2021.

Stallholders have been notified and will receive a refund.
