Event planning and support

The Council supports and promotes events of all sizes in Wellington city - from major corporate-sponsored events to smaller community events and programmes.

Organising an event

Sometimes you need to get special permission from the Council to hold street events.

    Event advice

    We can give advice on how to run your event and manage street closures.

      Equipment hire

      We can help you access free or reasonably-priced hire equipment if you are organising a community programme or event.

      Event billboard and banner sites

      Billboards at Wellington Railway Station and Jervois Quay can be used to promote Wellington City events.
