Inspired by the fields of daffodils in the Cheviot Hills Reserve, the Festival is held annually in early September in the Cheviot School Grounds. The 2016 event was a wonderful day out for all involved with a bustling atmosphere found at every corner. The date for 2017 is the 9th of September.
A day of fun, family and flowers, each year we welcome a wide range of visitors from around Hurunui, wider Canterbury, Kaikoura and Christchurch, and invite them to sit back, relax, eat, shop and enjoy all that our country fete and village has to offer.
The impact of the Hurunui-Kaikoura earthquake on Cheviot has been widely felt. For our local businesses, the road closure has meant visitors are few and far between and sales are significantly down on this time last year. The Cheviot township is a shadow of its former lively self. To compound this, the wider community is suffering on a different level, with damaged homes and fractured nerves found across the district. The farming community, and our gardens, have also endured three year's of drought, but that is behind us now, the grass is green, the gardens are growing!

This is not your average fashion show. Started in 2009, it was the brainchild of Sara Carr and Lisa Goettel, sitting on a Big Sur barstool throwing around a few wild ideas on the back of a napkin with one clear vision— to inspire, showcase and celebrate the creativity of Big Sur. Since then, hundreds of participants have evolved it far beyond that early vision into the large & popular Central Coast event it is today. All runway acts are designed by amateur local artists who often spend months crafting their outfits. A central challenge each year is to design entirely without fabric or traditional clothing materials. Each designer and their models orchestrate a full 2-minute runway act inspired by a different theme or challenge each year. The event showcases and supports local artists, stylists and performers and is supported by more than 200 volunteers. It is funded entirely by ticket sales and sponsorships by local businesses and community members.
