Armistice in Cambridge is the largest commemorative event in New Zealand, marking the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice between the Allied nations and the German Empire in 1918, ending the First World War.

And this year, Armistice in Cambridge 2017 is commemorating 100 years of tank warfare.

Kids - come along and earn your tank badge, corporal stripes or navy badge, by completing a range of activities: take part in a trench battle, archery, throw a navy line, fire airsoft guns, make a model aircraft, drive radio-controlled tanks, and much much more! Collect the enlistment form as you arrive. It's family fun, at a realistic price. Get the special Early Bird Family Ticket online [2 adults + 3 children, children are 12 years & under].

At Armistice in Cambridge the history and pageantry of New Zealand’s military past is recognised through the displaying of militaria, old and new - from tanks, historic armoured cars, military trucks and motorbikes, through to famous battle re-enactments, including Crete and Desert Warfare. Displays of even further back to the ancestry of many Kiwis, shows battles involving Romans, Vikings and other such interesting combatant clans of history past. 100s of ‘buy and sell’ tables of militaria, antiques and collectables. Model aircraft, warships and war dioramas; parachutists and aircraft displays; New Zealand Defence Force exhibits; New Zealand Cadet Forces; and Armistice music and dance entertainment from the war years.

For the first time, the Online Cenotaph roadshow unit will be on-site. It has a biographical database of NZ service personnel, where you can discover connections and share your knowledge about a service person's life - bring along information, documents and photos you may have, and they can be digitised and added to the database.

Come and see it all at Mighty River Domain, Lake Karapiro, Cambridge.
