Marton Market Day cancellation

October 14, 2021

After careful consideration it is with a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of Marton Market Day 2021.

The current regulations set by the government for events such as this means that Alert Level 1 is the only level that we would be able to continue safely. While the government has signalled that new regulations are being developed, which may allow events to continue at various alert levels, they are not yet in place to give us and stall holders sufficient confidence and time to plan and invest in Marton Market Day 2021.

These times are hard for anyone that works within the event sector. We have seen all of our districts large, iconic events cancel for 2021. Our consolation prize is believing there is an end in sight and that 2022 events throughout the Rangitīkei District will likely be back on the calendar and better than ever before.

Council would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for the ongoing support that Marton Market Day continues to receive from the community, stall holders, suppliers, and visitors and we look forward to seeing this event and others come back to life again next year.
