Festival of Hockey was created to bring top international teams to Hawke's Bay on an annual basis.

About the Festival of Hockey

We want to showcase to the world what a beautiful spot this is and get Hawke’s Bay on the map. Not only do we want to offer this to international teams but also to school girl’s as well as affiliated teams.

The 2016 Festival of Hockey was a success, with the addition of two new teams in attendance. We enjoyed hosting the Canadian and Ireland teams for the first time in Hawke’s Bay.

2017 Dates are confirmed – 1st – 9th April


Hawke’s Bay Sports Events and Education Consortium is a community, not for profit association which was established to help the Hawke’s Bay community deliver events such as the Festival of Hockey.

It is a way of bringing enthusiastic Hawke’s Bay businesses together to support special events such as this.

It is our way of showcasing what Hawke’s Bay has to offer and give the community and people travelling to the Hawke’s Bay the chance to experience all the local delights, whilst watching some top international hockey.
