In Whanganui, we begin every year with a big, loud, colourful party!

While enjoying an eclectic range of vintage and celebration-themed events, we rejoice in how lucky we are to live in this humming place filled with treasured heritage buildings and framed by a stunning natural environment. We make music and art, we dance, we dress up, we travel in style.

All the locals come out and we invite the neighbours to come over - there’s simply no better time to experience the Whanganui feeling, than at our biggest party. A packed calendar of events and attractions ensures there is something for every party-goer, every day.
