New Year's Eve Community Celebrations

Sunday 31 December 2023




Sun 31 December, 18:00-21:30


Tauranga City

Celebrate New Year’s Eve with family and friends at one of Tauranga City Council’s free community celebrations. Enjoy live music, roving entertainment, food trucks, activities for the kids and a local MC to host.

The events will finish with fireworks at 9.30pm, except the Greerton celebration that will finish with a laser light show.

Five community celebrations, 6pm – 9.30pm

  • Gordon Spratt Reserve – Papamoa
  • The Waterfront – Tauranga City Centre
  • Fergusson Park – Matua (accessible/low-sensory event from 5.30pm – 6pm)
  • Tauranga Racecourse – Greerton (laser night show instead of fireworks, as horses are on site)
  • Blake Park – Mount Maunganui

For those who experience sensory sensitivities and/or have accessibility requirements, the Matua celebration will also have an earlier celebration from 5.30pm – 6pm with limited sound and crowds.

Bring a picnic, sunscreen, water and have some fun bidding farewell to 2023!

These are alcohol and smoke free events, temporary and permanent liquor bans are in place in and around each site
