The Fencible colonists have travelled to New Zealand on their sailing ship from across the sea.

Introducing our newest attraction, a replica 19th century sailboat!

Come and hear the stories of the Fencibles and their families.

Plenty of hands-on activities, opportunities to have a go at making your own sailing ship and more. There is something on every day of the festival.

Visit the Howick Historical Village website for up-to-date information about daily activities.
