As the door is shut on some of Wairarapa’s iconic events, a marketing campaign is
underway to remind people that visitors continue to be warmly welcome.
Destination Wairarapa general manager Anna Nielson says, “Wairarapa - still plenty to do”, is pitched at visitors who had maybe planned to come to the region for an event but are now having second thoughts because the event has been cancelled.
“All of the things that people love about Wairarapa such as our fabulous food and wine, big open spaces, stunning scenery and so on are all still here, ready and waiting to be enjoyed,” Ms Nielson says.
The New Zealand Government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic has effectively either cancelled or postponed indefinitely all events and public gatherings of over 500 people.
In Wairarapa, immediately impacted is this weekend’s annual Martinborough Round the Vines and the National Drag Racing competition in Masterton. Other big annual events such as the Wairarapa Balloon Festival over Easter Weekend have also been
either cancelled or postponed.
“These events bring lots of visitors to the Wairarapa, and our message is, although these events are now no longer running, there is still plenty on offer, so please come,” Ms Nielson says.
Tourism spend contributes about $195 million to the Wairarapa economy, employing around 1500 people. There are about 250,000 commercial guest nights in the Wairarapa each year.
“These are extraordinary times, particularly for people working in the tourism industry. As an organisation with over 300 members we need to do whatever we can to help businesses navigate through this period of uncertainty," Nielsen said.

Featherston Booktown cancelled

Piers Fuller Reporter from News of Wairarapa

It is with great disappointment that, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the latest guidelines from the NZ Government – and following extensive consideration by the Featherston Booktown Board of Trustees, Featherston Booktown has decided to cancel the 2020 Festival scheduled for 7-10 May 2020.… View moreIt is with great disappointment that, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the latest guidelines from the NZ Government – and following extensive consideration by the Featherston Booktown Board of Trustees, Featherston Booktown has decided to cancel the 2020 Festival scheduled for 7-10 May 2020.
In making this decision, the Featherston Booktown Board are putting the health and safety of the Featherston community, writers, volunteers, audience members and other guests above all other considerations.
Featherston Booktown Operations Manager, Mary Biggs, says she is sad but grateful to the Board of Trustees for making this very hard decision.
"We want to keep our Featherston community, our writers and visitors safe and well. An enormous amount of work has been done to get to this point, so it’s disappointing that the Programme launch can’t go ahead on the 31st March and that we can’t celebrate the artefact of the book at our Festival in May.”
Featherston Booktown would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused – but hope that in making this call when we have, any inconvenience will be minimised.
The Featherston Booktown Board of Trustees is considering rescheduling the festival to later in the year – or holding it in another form - but this will depend on Government requirements regarding crowd sizes and events.
“We shall continue to monitor the situation and advise the public on our decisions about the Featherston Booktown Festival,” said Chair of the Featherston Booktown Board, Peter Biggs.
