Community spirit is alive and well in friendly Feilding’s events.
Our events help us to celebrate, encourage cultural and community interaction, enrich lives, and build memories.
They ensure that our home continues to be a landmark for attracting and growing good people, great businesses and investments.
Locals come together and visitors are drawn in from our neighbouring areas to share in the fun and great community spirit.
Rural Day is a favourite on the regional calendar every October. The event where town meets country and Feilding town centre is transformed into a living farm yard.
The spirit of Christmas heralds throughout Feilding in December, and includes the Christmas Carnival renown for having the best and biggest Christmas Parade in the region.
We’ve been organising the prestigious Excellence in Business Awards for over 20 years now, with the next awards being held in September 2019.
We believe in recognising progress and development, celebrating success and rewarding our talented and smart businesses, organisations and people.
Friendly Feilding is a great place to celebrate with community spirit.
