Events & Festivals
If you stay with Chateau Marlborough in January, you can catch premier horseracing action at the Waterlea Racing Club Carnival.
In February, you’re right on time to experience the legendary Marlborough Food and Wine Festival, a week-long festival of Marlborough wine and gourmet delights!
March is the month for the awesome Havelock Mussel Festival, while April and Easter weekend are abuzz with crowds for the Classic Warbird Fighters Airshow.
November is Garden Marlborough time, and Blenheim town and Gardens come alight with summer color. This is a superb time to see the beautiful gardens of Blenheim and Marlborough on one of the many garden tours and garden parties that are held over the festival week. The Garden Fete held at Seymour Square on the last day of this wonderful event is a showstopper.
