Event Canceled for 2021 due to COVID

The Hororata Community Trust has made the difficult decision to cancel the 11th Hororata Highland Games planned for the 6th of November 2021.

The Hororata Highland Games is a significant outdoor event attracting around 10,000 people annually, and can only operate in alert level 1.

It is not a decision we take lightly, but our community has been through a lot recently with floods, wind and snow, and given the current uncertainty with COVID alert levels we have needed to make a firm decision to cancel the Games. The Trust, first and foremost, is here for the wellbeing of our community and in uncertain times we need to give certainty.

All tickets have been sold through Eventfinda will be offered full refunds. Ticket holders will also have the option to donate their purchase to the Hororata Community Trust and in return will be offered a 50% discount off tickets to the next Hororata Highland Games. Any donations will go towards the work the Trust does supporting its rural community. Competitors and stall holders will also be refunded.
