There will be a dedicated area for campervans and motorhomes right in the centre of the action, at Clareville Showgrounds. These sites are exclusively available for Night Glow ticket holders, for just $15 per night, or $10 per night for NZMCA members.


Campsites are non-powered, and limited to 500 sites, so make sure you book campsite early to avoid disappointment. These can be purchased through Eventfinda when you buy your Night Glow tickets.


If you’d like to purchase your campsite tickets after you’ve bought your Night Glow tickets, just make sure you’re logged into your Eventfinda account, head to the 2023 Wairarapa Balloon Festival listing, and you’ll be able to add on your campsite tickets.

NZMCA members need to enter their membership number when purchasing tickets, to get access to the discounted campsite rate.
