Darton Anniversary 2019

It is late winter, cold and dark, and 20 years ago a group of like-minded people gathered together to create our Shire.

Come and join the Shire of Darton on the weekend commencing Friday 23 August 2019 to Sunday 25 August 2019 in celebrating the anniversary of its inception.  A family friendly event, full of cheer and good will.  We will celebrate the end of winter, the past two decades and the start of a new one, while donning our warmest woollens and furs.

Activities including the Darton championships in archery, fencing and heavy combat.  There will also be games in the nature of dice, card, stones and other traditional (and not so traditional) games to pass the time away with our friends.

For those coming from afar, we will try to accommodate transport and billeting needs around the event; the sooner you get in touch with us the more likely we are to succeed!

Venue:  Brookfield Outdoor Education Centre, Moores Valley Road, Wainuiomata, Wellington.
