61st NZMCA National Rally & AGM in Nelson
Be part of a historic event!
For the first time in NZMCA history, the 61st edition of the National Rally & AGM will be on a non-Easter date. Hosted by the Nelson/Tasman and Westcoast areas, it will be held from the 23rd to the 27th of February 2017 at the Richmond Park Showgrounds (348 Lower Queen Street Richmond, Nelson).
It has been a dream of the Nelson Tasman area for some years to move the National Rally & AGM towards a warmer time of the year and in 2017, it will finally happen.
Sunny days and warmer temperatures are not the only treats the Nelson/Tasman/Westcoast National Rally Committee promises to faithful members who have been supporting the National Rally over the years.
A whole slew of exciting events with low-cost organised parking will be held right up to the National Rally: for lovers of country music, the popular Music In The Mountains starts off the year on the 27th January. More music awaits when the Buller Gorge Country Music Festival opens its doors on 3rd February. Foodies and wine connoisseurs will have their fill of culinary delights with the two-day Marlborough Wine & Food Festival which starts 11th February. And if two days of food and wine is not enough, members can head out to the Brightwater Wine + Food Festival for another two days starting on the 18th of February.
