Our very own New Orleans French Quarter!


An absolute crowd pleaser, the Jazz Village, set in the unique Historic Village on 17th Ave delivers entertainment for everyone in true New Orleans style.

Join the revelry on the streets, dance to dixie and swing in the Village Square, relax on the lawn in front of the outdoor Main Stage and be entertained by a chocolate box of jazz and blues flavours.

Featuring on the Main Stage: All Girl Big Band – luscious big band jazz, Michal Martyniuk Quartet – fresh and exciting fusion jazz, Shaken Not Stirred – funky swingin’ jazz and blues, Chill Winston- poppy groovy dancing tunes, and The Flaming Mudcats – red hot rhythm and blues.

Stroll through the funky shops, meander down bustling aisles of artisan market stalls, enjoy a wide variety of food and refreshments including wine and beer while you enjoy live music and make a day of it.

Something for everyone to enjoy including fun rides and activities for the children.

Bring your family and friends for a Tauranga jazz experience like no other.
