The Marton Harvest Fair is on again. Come and celebrate the harvest season in true country fashion. With over 80 quality stalls, food, music and fun. A day to bring the family, join your friends and neighbors and celebrate our history and harvest.

This is our day to celebrate our history, our heritage, our culture and our identity as a rural New Zealand town. It is our day to celebrate our harvest in the myriad forms it takes in our region. It is a day to let our hair down, to picnic together, enjoy the music and find all the gifts we need for the family, and treats we wanted for ourselves. With stalls for everything from pickles and jams, paintings & pots, garden ornaments to jewellery, food and pot plants, it is a day where you will get everything you would expect at a Harvest fair, good food, great stalls and fantastic entertainment, fun activities, and then some things you didn't expect - heard of goose herding? Well you soon will. It is a day for fun, flair and families. Come along and join us for the day.

We are thrilled, celebrity chef Jax Hamilton will be joining us for the day! Jax will be giving live cooking demonstrations, and judging the Pumpkin Pie Baking Contest! With Jax's flair and effervescent personality I am sure you will love meeting her, come along and learn how you can create your own culinary masterpieces!

(We also have Jax holding a masterclass on the Friday evening, 21st. If you are keen to be involved, simply give Cath a shout on projectmaston@xtra.co.nz or 327 7633)

If you would like a stall for the day, get your registration form here from our website.

Marton is the malting capital of New Zealand! So it is only fitting we have our own Home Brew Competition. But just to let you know the competition is strong. One of Marton's favourite pastimes is home brewing, maybe born from our origins, right back before Marton was Marton. We were a little town a few miles down the road, someone suggested we should be a dry town so the locals uplifted all their belongings and moved further up the road and established Marton as well as some pretty impressive stills. Marton is also home to Malteurop, NZs largest malting plant. If you would like to enter your brew into our competition feel free to grab a registration form from: projectmarton@xtra.co.nz.

Harvest time is also scarecrow time. So the local businesses, residents and organisations create a new scarecrow each year to help celebrate our rural connections. If you are local and haven't got your entry form yet pick it up from the Project Marton office, or alternatively you can email to projectmarton@xtra.co.nz

Big, small, decorated, baked - pumpkins galore! The Harvest Festival is home to the pumpkins and all their myriad of varieties. Bring your pumpkin creation on the day by 9.00am and go in to win.
Competitions include:
Biggest pumpkin - can you beat last year's winner at just 126kgs?
Pumpkin decorating - from beastly and beautiful to the bizarre, get creative with pumpkins!
Pumpkin pie bake-off - bring your ready-made pie to be judged by our celebrity chef Jax Hamilton.
