The Picton Maritime Festival is brought to you by a team of dedicated volunteers who work tirelessly throughout the year to organise Marlborough's best free, family , fun day out - and celebrate our unique maritime heritage!
We couldn't do this without the support of these wonderful businesses, whose support enables our Maritime Festival to continue each year. Please support them in return.
All Maritime Festival attendees recognise the "Interislander Stage!" Interislander have been supporting our community through the sponsorship of the Maritime Festival since the very beginning.
The Interislander ferry is the longest running Cook Strait ferry service in New Zealand. Interislander sails between Wellington (North Island) and Picton (South Island). The iconic Interislander trip is known as one of the most beautiful ferry journeys in the world and one of New Zealand's most iconic tourism experiences. Thanks Interislander!
Marlborough District Council
The Marlborough District Council are essential supporters of the Picton Maritime festival, and we are very grateful for their assistance each year. They assist with the provision of the Foreshore Reserve area for the event, allocating us some sponsorship funds, and help us promote the festival and obtain necessary licences and permissions for our activities. Thanks MDC!
