The Upper Clutha Sports Community is excited to be hosting the sixth annual Festival of Sport and Recreation. The Festival will be held later than usual this year over the weekend of Saturday the 28th and Sunday the 29th November 2020 at the Wanaka Recreation Centre. Last year’s successful Motivational Sports Speaker Series will be held on the Saturday evening as part of the Festival Weekend.

This year there will be more on offer with the Festival stretching over an entire weekend! This weekend of festivities is designed to entertain, inform, promote and celebrate the range of sport and recreational activities on offer within our community. It will encourage you to be involved in all the action and learn from our awesome guest speakers. The Mitre 10 Wanaka 2020 Festival of Sport and Recreation will include:

Motivational Sports Speaker Evening to inspire and engage our sporting community with informative and interesting stories and advice from sports speakers.

An Indoor Display Expo promoting community sporting clubs, associated businesses and local sporting celebrities.
