Events in our city – creating a new plan
Thanks for coming to find out about the future of events in our city.
Tauranga currently hosts more than 600 events every year, from community celebrations through to concerts and major sporting events.
We know hosting events has positive economic and social benefits for our community that add to the vibrancy and wellbeing of our city.
We aim to enable and support a wide variety of events throughout the year so that there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
What we do
Our events team supports events in two ways.
- Providing advice on holding events on our public open space and working through the event approval process with event organisers.
- Providing financial support to events via our Event Funding Framework.
Events with Tauranga City Council
We provide a range of indoor and outdoor venues that are used for events, some of which are managed by Bay Venues Limited on behalf of Tauranga City Council. There are also many other venue providers in the city.
What we need from you
To help us understand what you would like to see in the future we’ll be running a “have your say” survey later this year.
We’ll use your feedback to create a plan to help shape the future of events in Tauranga Moana.
