Festival of Christmas

Come and be part of the Greytown Festival of Christmas this July, with a month-long programme of spectacular lights, workshops, events, Matariki activities, markets, parties, food and family fun, and an exciting new theme Fire and Ice!

Kicking off on Saturday 29 June with the Big Switch, and wraps up with the Grand Finale on Saturday 27 July, the festival includes a whole lot of entertainment in between, bringing back firm favourites alongside some exciting new events and activities.

The festival has quickly grown into a new tradition, with all the hallmarks of a Northern Hemisphere winter escape, but with our own kiwi flavour. It brings together families, school children, community groups and locals, and attracts people from all around New Zealand to eat, drink, shop and celebrate in Greytown.
