The Kaimoana Festival is Maketu Rotary's main fundraiser for the year, and Rotary have returned to the Maketu Sports Ground site to maintain their close links with the community.

The festival will go ahead rain or shine, and marquees will be provided for shelter from the weather.

Festival goers are able to bring their own shelter and chairs as well, although food and alcohol are not permitted.
