Welcome to Season 4 of New Zealand's largest and newest travelling event! The Extravaganza Fair!

The Extravaganza Fair is a family affair, it is a free entry, fun day out with something for everyone.

We're bringing to NZ a unique style of interesting market stalls, arts and craft, food, musical entertainment, circus shows, performers, unique to NZ tiny homes, including open home and kids shows & games. We're bringing back the 'old school', join in our sack races, tug of wars & musical bean bags & be in to win prizes!

Remember to pack your refillable water bottles! We have banned the plastic bag & plastic straw (offering paper straws if needed), using all compostable & recyclable packaging to help reduce waste. We have our very own Recycle Centre Trailer with recycle warriors on site sorting and helping you to use the correct bins. Aiming to become 'carbon neutral' by donating to tree planting charities at the end on each season. (See our FB page for details).

All dates and towns will be listed here and on our Facebook page. Join our group page and share your photos.

The Great Kiwi Egg Hunt!

20 Apr 2019 (Sat) - 28 May 2019 (Tue)

National Aquarium of New Zealand, Saturday 20 April 2019 – Sunday 28 April 2019 9:00am – 4:30pm

Come along to the Aquarium to go on an egg-citing adventure!

Not just any egg hunt, it's an egg-streme search for 11 great Kiwi eggs amongst our exhibits!


If you can crack the answer by spotting all the Kiwi eggs, you'll go into the draw for a 12 month Friend of Aquarium Family membership!

You'll also become an eggs-pert about our wonderful New Zealand icon, the Kiwi, by learning some fun facts along the way.

Each general admission ticket will give you a special Kiwi Egg Hunting sheet with clues and a free Aquarium pencil to get those answers right!

Start hunting from Saturday 13 April until Sunday 28 April.

Antipodes NZ Tour

22 Apr 2019 (Mon) - 23 Apr 2019 (Tue)

Paisley Stage, 17 Carlyle Street, Napier, Monday 22 April 2019 7:00pm – 9:00pm

Antipodes is a collective of New Zealand and Australian jazz musicians playing original compositions that emphasise melody, emotive soundscapes, and an open improvisational aesthetic. The music draws from diverse influences – modern New York jazz meets Swedish indie pop and European free improvised music. Audiences are first drawn in by introspective, timbral improvisations and then set to foot-tapping with danceable beats, songlike melodies and fiery solos.
