Narrows Park is the perfect venue for a summer bluegrass festival.

Founded as a Christian retreat, it is set in extensive picturesque grounds near Hamilton. There are powered and unpowered camping sites, bunk rooms and great facilities.

There are a variety of venues for music within the camp and lots of spaces for jamming.

Book accommodation/camping directly by contacting Narrows Park:

  • Powered camping: (be quick to get a powered site) $18/night/person
  • Non-power campsite: $15/night/person
  • Bunk rooms (mixed): $26/night/person

Bunk rooms have 8 beds per room, in 4 sets of bunks. You can specify names of people you would like to share rooms with (or absolutely do not want to share rooms with!). You will receive your bunk room assignment when you check in for the festival. Showers and kitchens available to all campers.

You can only book camping if you are coming the festival.  Accommodation is available from Monday 28 January so if you have travelled afar to go to the Auckland Folk Festival you can come straight to Narrows and camp ready for the Kiwigrass Academy and the Kiwigrass Festival.

First book your festival and academy tickets, then to book your accommodation email the Narrows with your booking details.
