Holly Trail


Holly Trail is back for 2024 – Save the date!

Despite the effects of Cyclone Gabrielle earlier this year, we are very excited to let you know that the Holly Trail is shaping up to be a cracker in 2024!

Firstly, we want to thank KK Marffy and her incredible team that has run the Holly Trail since 2012. KK has now handed over the reins, after bringing joy to many Trailers who have reveled in the beautiful homes and Christmas spirit of past events.

But now onto the new. We have a brilliant team rustling up the spirit of Christmas for you in November when gardens in Hawke’s Bay are at their best. You will get to marvel at this creative experience, engaging all your senses in an explosion of Christmas creativity. Holly Trail 2024 will be a surprise to even the most seasoned Trailer!

Before we share the details, we would like to remind you why we love and support this event… Cranford Hospice. This incredible organisation provides an invaluable service for the people of our beautiful region, from Takapau to Mahia, helping them navigate terminal illness and live every moment the best they can.

We would like to introduce Andrew Lesperance, Chief Executive from Cranford Hospice, and listen to his one-minute video about what the event and your contribution means to this amazing organisation.

And now for the grand reveal….

7-9 November 2024

We will be sending you more details in March 2024, such as when tickets go on sale, introduce our sponsors, launch our new website and a whole lot more. Just know for now, we can’t wait to deliver the most delightful Holly Trail next year and you are invited!

Thank you immensely for your support.

Merry Christmas!
