The many events Celebrating Newtown between now and March 23rd include the Newtown Community Centre celebrating their building’s Centenary on Feb 21st, and a series of things happening on March 14th – the Great Newtown Garage Sale Day, the Big Bike Fix-up, and the Carrara Park Jazz Picnic. There are lots more events on other days – get the full programme here.
The big day is the Festival Street Fair Day on Sunday March 8th. The streets of Newtown are closed to traffic from Mein St to Russell Tce, so we can have the biggest free party in New Zealand! There are lots of actives in South Riddiford St that are new to the Festival this year – including the Te Atiawa Toa Te Raukura Stage, and free Street Sports – check it out! We are also delighted that the International Women’s Day organisers have chosen to celebrate their day with us this year – join them on the Wellington Women Walk for Peace leaving from the Normanby/Riddiford St corner at 10.30, and for a day of events at the International Women’s Stage
