The 2021 New Zealand Pipe Band Championships is a way of bringing members of pipe bands and their supporters to Hawke’s Bay.

It is a unique way to showcase what Hawke’s Bay has to offer and give our community and people traveling to Hawke’s Bay the chance to experience all the local delights, whilst enjoying the best pipe bands the country has to offer.

We are grateful for the support of our sponsors. If you would like to get involved or support this event please email us.
