Tui Farm Folk Festival 2017 

Friday 29th December 2017 to Tuesday 2nd January 2018

Tui Festival has been held on the 25 acre farm that is owned by Carol & Stephen Rose since December 2003.  Located 85kms south/west of Nelson, it has become a very popular New Year holiday spot for many individuals and families who enjoy listening to and participating in music at all levels. 

You can even bring your pooch as long as you agree to camp in one of the two paddocks that are designated as the doggie paddocks. Easily accessible and handy to the marquee.

Regularly on the programme at Tui are the Blind date groups (you might well ask!); Festival Choir; Liars Breakfast (bush poetry on acid); Jamming Round The Fires; Workshops; Children's Programme and loads more. 

Tui Farm has two river boundaries and the swimming holes are easily accessible during the festival.  We even have a swimming hole for the doggies.

Partake of everything that's going or just chill out around the festival, catch up with old friends, make loads of new ones and listen to some great music.

Hope to see you there.
