This gathering of 400 people was referred to in the newspaper of the time as being a replica on a small scale of the Jubilee gathering of 1900. There was a picnic lunch and some sports events but the real purpose of the reunion was to form an Old Colonists Association for Canterbury. Members were required to have been born in the settlement or arrived in Canterbury before 1870.
