Entertainment & Events

The best thing about this great little country is you’ll never get bored! And some of the best entertainment is free…. Local Farmers Markets are a big hit – and it’s much more than buying fresh produce - the whole community comes together, chatting, drinking coffee, meeting friends and welcoming visitors. This is a great Kiwi experience – most markets are al fresco and have wonderful local musicians playing everything from Latin American music to Country & Western and Jazz. Free concerts in the park are also a unique feature of Kiwi life. Bring a picnic and enjoy the atmosphere.

The choice is yours 24/7 – a ticket to an international sports match, ballet or show or a relaxed outing at your own pace. Local i-SITE visitor centres are great places to start with for information on markets, music, and events in the area.
