Iconic to the Hawke’s Bay social calendar, the Boxing Day Festival returns for its sixth occasion to Cape Estate in 2021. The festival delivers the best in Hawke’s Bay hospitality and entertainment drawing together family and friends in an open-air garden stage setting to bring you a memorable summer occasion.
