Events strategy

The future of events in Tauranga

Thanks for coming to find out about the future of events in our city. 

Tauranga currently hosts hundreds of events every year, from community celebrations through to concerts and major sporting events. 

We know that events have the ability to connect and inspire communities, whilst also providing tangible economic benefits. 

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.

  1. Providing advice on holding events on our public open space and supporting event organisers through the event approval process.
  2. 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 did

To help us understand what you would like to see in the future we rana survey to collect your feedback and had around 700 responses.

We’ll use this feedback to create a plan to help shape the future of events in Tauranga Moana. 

Have your say – consultation is closed

The survey closed 5pm,  Monday, 26 July 2021.

The winner of the double pass to Baycourt Community and Arts Centre will be drawn this week and notified directly.

Thank you to everyone who had their say. We had around 700 responses!
