Join us every weekend in January and February as some of Pōneke's finest performers fill the waterfront with vibrant delights, all to raise funds for the Wellington Free Ambulance.

Last year saw a rollercoaster of talented swing dancers, jazz bands, fire spinners, opera singers, acrobats, and some of Aotearoa's best buskers.

This year the Summer Sampler returns with even more surprises, offerings, and incredible artists.
