The Waipara Vintage Festival started in 1978 and has been held biennially since 1995.
It is to support the Friends of Glenmark Church, an Incorporated Society which was formed in 1974 to assist in the maintenance and preservation of the historic community Church in Waipara, North Canterbury, New Zealand, as an architectural and community asset.

The Waipara Vintage Festival has been held the last six times on 'Wattle Grove', Mackenzies Rd, Waipara. 

Glenmark Church Vintage Car

The Weka Pass Railway support the Waipara Vintage Festival with a special time table, running steam train rides from a temporary 'halt' for the Festival adjacent to the festival site.

Previous years there has been exhibitions of many tractions engines, vintage tractors and cars,  stationery engines, vintage ploughing, draught horses, display by the Waipara Volunteer Fire Brigade, chaff cutting, tin mill display, dog trial and sheep shearing demonstration, military vehicles, aerial top dressing display, ground fertiliser spreading by a truck with a 'blower', and a variety of interesting stalls, including food supplied by local organisations as fundraisers. This opportunity for fundraising has also been appreciated by local organisations and schools.
