Welcome to Wellyfest!

The Wellington Folk Festival is held every Labour Weekend at Brookfield Outdoor Education Centre – a beautiful site owned by the Scouts at 562 Moores Valley, Wainuiomata, Lower Hutt, New Zealand. The location is a nature reserve, so please no pets!

Every year, the Festival runs over New Zealand’s Labour Weekend, celebrated on the fourth Monday of October. The Festival gate is open from 3pm on the Friday, with events running over Friday evening, all day Saturday through to Sunday evening. You can come for the weekend, for a day, half day or an evening.

Weekend passes entitle the holders to camp onsite and there are a limited number of bunks available for sale as well.
