Featherston Booktown Karukatea Festival 2021

Ticketing Information

Ticket Combinations, Specials and Discounts

If you would like to attend five or more events with general admission tickets (those events that don’t have food or beverages as part of the event), you will automatically receive a 15% discount at the checkout.  This discount will also apply if you choose to go to a combination of events like the Fish’n’Chip Supper and Show Ponies on Friday 7 May, or to all three events at Tarureka on Saturday 8 May (The Lyre of Orpheus, Mr Sold’s True Stories Told Live and Late Nite Lit: Poetry Collision). And if you want to attend the Palliser Estate Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea with your best buddies, your mum, sisters or aunts and gather together a table of eight, there is a special ticket for you!  Purchase a table of eight and you will receive a free bottle of Palliser Estate The Griffin.

COVID-19, Cancellations & Refunds

We are so lucky to be at Covid Alert level one at the time of writing.  Should we move to Covid Alert level two or higher, the sixth Featherston Booktown Karukatea 2021 Festival will be cancelled.  If this eventuates your tickets will be fully refunded by Eventfinda.


All tickets this year will be available on Eventfinda. After Easter you will also be able to purchase tickets at the Martinborough and Masterton i-site visitor information centres.

Children Events Free

All the events for children will be free of charge and this is made possible through the generosity of our funders and sponsors, including the South Wairarapa District Council, Read NZ Te Pou Muramura and Reap Wairarapa. 

Book for Free Events

This year, due to Covid-19, all our events are ticketed for contact tracing requirements, so please register for every event that you would like to attend, whether there is a ticket fee or not.  

Multiple Tickets, One Purchase on Eventfinda

Following on from feedback received from the 2019 Festival, you will notice a new initiative on Eventfinda for Featherston Booktown this year. There will be a shopping list available on Eventfinda which can be loaded up with multiple tickets before having to proceed to check out.
