A small group of enthusiastic locals resurrected the carnival in 2013 and are committed to building strong-term relationships with the community and our sponsors. It is in our best interest to provide a well organised, quality event, which will ensure Carrot Carnivals continued growth.



Carrot Carnival activities and competitions encourage participation from all the community to be physically and creatively active and involved. We encourage all who attend and participate to get out and about in their community, discover

what’s on offer in this region and promote healthy lifestyles.



The Ohakune Carrot Carnival aims to


  • Promote health, family, community and economic well-being
  • Develop active and adventurous spirits.
  • Educate, encourage and promote the benefits of healthy living and fun outdoor activity
  • Build closer relationships between all members of the community
  • Demonstrate and promote the specialized skills, knowledge and strengths required in the adventure tourism industry.
  • Continue to build the Ohakune Carrot Carnival brand name, logo and reputation as a fun family event.


Who’s there

The community fully supports the event by volunteering, donating and organising Carrot Carnival. Service, charity and education organisations are directly involved, as are retailers

and members of the forestry, agriculture and tourism industries.

There is something for everyone at the Ohakune Carrot Carnival as the streets are bursting with stalls and activity.


Why sponsor

Ohakune Carrot Carnival has been renowned on the NZ events calendar and will once again become a “must attend” for a wide range of New Zealanders’s and tourists.

Sponsors have the chance to align their brand with a wholesome and fun annual family event.

The Carrot Carnival continues to offer education, promotion, marketing and product display opportunities around the event.
