Join us with friends and whānau for New Year’s Eve! Enjoy a free, fun evening of toe-tapping music, and a fitting blast of fireworks to welcome in 2023.

Cover band Zephyr will entertain from 8pm, followed by a Kids Countdown at 9.30pm for those little ones who can’t make it all the way to midnight but don’t want to miss out on the fun. The Kids Countdown will include a short burst of fireworks from the barge in the harbour.

Orchestra Wellington will wow with beautiful music from 10pm, followed by the New Year’s countdown, and a few minutes of fireworks to bring in 2023.

There will be a small selection of food trucks in Odlin’s Plaza from 5pm.
