This year’s annual District Rotary Event will NOT be a conference! This year RotaFEST 18 will incorporate in the programme many activities and opportunities for you to be entertained, to witness the Rotary opening of a world first in native animal care at WildBase Recovery, to enjoy world class speakers, and to share our Rotary experience and activities with each other and the community.
Be amazed with the talent of our high school youth jazz bands performing in public with support from the Rodger Fox Big Band. Kiwi icon and musical legend Mark Williams who is taking a break from performing with Dragon to be part of RotaFEST 18. Most recently Mark performed with Dragon at WOMAD in New Plymouth where the crowd erupted in to life with huge energy and entertainment with the musical smorgasbord served up.
Our dinner has been shifted from RNZAF Base Ohakea (due to operational needs) to the Palmerston North Convention Centre. Be prepared for a night to Go in to the Wild Blue Yonder .
We will Go Wild About Rotary with an amazing dinner and entertainment from Mark Williams and the Rodger Fox Big Band, through the night and then culminating in a musical and dance festival of own own to celebrate a year where we have definitely Gone Wild About Rotary !!  Get dressed to dance the night away.
