"Our History"



The Upper Hutt Summer Carnival is an event with Nearly 100 years of history. It was originally the Wellington A & P Show but due to the extensive change in farming patterns throughout our region, the focus of the event changed to what we know today as the Upper Hutt Summer Carnival.

In doing so groups in the community obtain the opportunity to fund raise and promote their activities.

Heritage based organizations display astonishing collections of equipment and property. Sporting organizations provide demonstrations and displays. Business’s promote there Industries, giving their brands and products inexpensive advertising exposure.
