Cricket fans should mark this four-day festival on their calendars. Talented cricketers from all over the country come to Whanganui to show their skills and enjoy the robust competition.
Established over 10 years ago, the Wanganui Cricket Festival runs for three weeks in January for Years 5 to 10 with each age group competing over a four-day period.
The event also includes the NZ National Girls Cricket Tournament and the competition is of the highest calibre. With traditionally spectacular weather in January, the games are held at Victoria Park – Whanganui’s premiere cricket ground.
The festival is a great time to support your budding cricketer and combine a family holiday.
