Downtown Tauranga Carnival

City comes alive with Jazz!! 

Downtown

Downtown Tauranga is the place to be this Easter Saturday and Sunday. The Strand comes alive with a carnival vibe that you don’t want to miss. 

Enjoy jazz, swing, blues and funk from NZ’s best on multiple stages along the Strand set amidst dozens of fine bars and restaurants. 

Relax or dance the weekend away with the sparkling waters of Tauranga Moana as a backdrop. 

The fun begins with the Vintage Parade in true New Orleans style down Willow Street on Saturday morning. 

Dress up and join in - from spiffing sportswear and straw boaters, floaty florals through to putting on the ritz and carnival glam, anything goes! Have some fun over the weekend, get some friends together, dress up and be in to win spot prizes. 

The Downtown Carnival is Tauranga’s biggest day of the year. It's going to be huge! It's going to be fun! And it's a party you'd be crazy to miss!
