Get into the festive spirit with a special Christmas Festival on Saturday 19 December 2020, from 10am until 3pm.
Located in Jean Batten Square (near Rotorua Library and Rotorua i-SITE) this free event will have something for all the family to enjoy!
Throughout the day, there will be live performances of Christmas music from local bands and singers.
Kids can take part in fun arts and craft activities as well as get their face painted. They can write letters to Santa and post them in the letterbox to be delivered to the North Pole.
In the market area people can shop from arts and crafts stalls, food stands and bake sales.
Santa will be available for photo opportunities with the kids and there will be a nativity parade through Jean Batten Square.
Families are invited to bring a gift for the Community Christmas Tree located in Rotorua Library. These gifts will be donated to Waiariki Womens Refuge for families in need this Christmas.
The Christmas Festival runs alongside Santa’s Wonderland inside our main i-SITE (1167 Fenton Street). The Wonderland will be open from Saturday 21 November 2020 until Friday 8 January 2021 (except Christmas Day). Kids can explore different sections of the Wonderland including moving Santa’s, decorated and themed Christmas trees, snow globes, lots of Christmas lights, a nativity scene and much more.
