Waikato Cherry Tree Festival

The Waikato Cherry Tree Festival returns for 2018 from 21 - 23 September. This year is the second for the festival with the addition of longer hours (8am – 8pm), night lighting and an extra day to enjoy this magical event.

The Waikato Cherry Tree Festival is a great family event, with food vendors, stilt walkers, face painting, Japanese drummers, Kung Fu dance performers and even more great entertainment on offer.

Not to mention the opportunity to grab a few Instagram worthy snaps under the stunning pink hues of the cherry blossoms. 

The 2017 event saw tickets sell out within a week, so get in quick to secure yours.
