Spring - Sept/Oct/Nov

(Click "Events" title on the sub-menu for a more detailed calendar.)

Fruit blossoms and fresh green leaves on the trees – it’s a beautiful time to be outdoors. Everyone in Central Otago loves to celebrate the arrival of spring. Alexandra’s Blossom Festival in September, the Thyme Festival in November, these are just part of the fun… Labour Weekend at the end of October is another popular time for Events. If you have never seen a sheep shorn, the National Merino Shearing Competitions are held in the Molyneux Stadium, Alexandra, early October.
