What is the value of having a stall?

The Hunterville Huntaway Festival is a favourite on the calendars of Rangitikei locals and farming folk from all over New Zealand. Attracting 4,000 - 5,000 spectators a year and significant media attention, it is an event not to be missed and a great opportunity to sell your wares. With Christmas less than two months after the event, this is a prime chance to help attendees get their Christmas shopping underway.


Stalls are located in a safe, yet prominent area for maximum exposure.


Stall fees are kept to a minimum as this is a community event run by volunteers.


Stall Holder Criteria

We are open to a wide range of stalls and encourage you to apply. Our main condition is that you do not compete with the event BBQ. All stall holders will need to be approved by the Stall Holder Coordinator. You will need to comply with our Health and Safety Policy, and if selling food, you will need all of the appropriate food safety certificates.



Early Bird Stall Holder Price:  $35.00 (Entry forms received up until 30th September 2017)


Last Minute Stall Holder Price:  $50.00 (Entry forms received after 30th September 2017)


Food Stalls Price:   $35.00 (Stalls selling food and drink for consumption on the day)


No refunds will be given and no stall entries will be accepted the week of the event.
