Fetes and markets go well with warm summer days. Look out for the Clyde on Sunday Markets, and Art in the Garden over summer, and music festivals are popular over the January holiday period. Country A&P Shows (Omakau, Maniototo) draw the crowds at this time of year - and there are also plenty of outdoor sporting activities.
Art on the Rail Trail features the work of local artists at various venues along the Trail from February to Easter (early March).
Ride a horse with the famous Goldfields Cavalcade (last week Feb)- and there are plenty of challenges for mountain bikers - Dusk till Dawn – 12 hr Mt/bike race, Alex (Jan), Bannockburn Mountain Bike Classic (Dec), Otago Central Rail Trail Duathlon, Clyde-Middlemarch) and the Art Deco/Festival in the Park at Ranfurly (Feb).
