Newton Festival 2024

Sun, Mar. 3, 2024 09:00 — 17:00 Wellington – Te Whanganui-a-Tara

The Better NZ Trust is back again with vehicles and volunteers to spread our love of EVs. Come along, check out some cars and have a yarn with their owners.

On Festival Street Fair Day eleven blocks of central Riddiford Street and the adjoining Constable, Rintoul, and eleven side streets are all closed to vehicles and opened up to 80,000 people. The heart of Newtown is transformed by a smorgasbord of 12 music stages, a busking pitch, 3 fairground sites, and over 420 stalls.

Stages, stalls and people pack the main street and all the adjoining side streets. Newtown’s cafes and bars move outdoors into the road, accompanied by a fantastic range of tastes from many other food stalls.
