Day in the Bay

Sunday 9 February, 
10 - 5pm Shorland Park

This cool free, action packed event attracts a huge crowd from all over Wellington – people who come to enjoy the hospitality of our South Coast.


Performance artists provide entertainment as you stroll through the park and surrounding area. It’s a family fun day out – so bring friends, whanau, a hat and plenty of sunscreen.


Enjoy the rides for kids, and carnival games, then take your spot on the grass near Shorland Park’s famous band Rotunda to enjoy great music and entertainment OR jiggle about. Sample tasty eats from a diverse range of food stalls, and shop at the market stalls, selling a range of products from curiosities, creams and oils, to home decor products and ethically sourced collectibles.
