The Garden City: Christchurch City Mayor Phil Mauger

Christchurch is buzzing with creativity this winter, and our city’s talent is on display with all things art and culture.

It will make a nice break from the Long Term Plan process which is almost finished.

First up, we’ve got Tīrama Mai from 21–30 June to mark Puaka-Matariki. Think lighting displays, cultural performances, storytelling and local artwork.

This great event is the perfect excuse to wrap up warm and make the most of all the restaurants and bars in the central city.

The Winter Fireworks Spectacular will be shooting off from New Brighton Pier on Saturday 6 July. This one’s a particular favourite with my family and really shows off what the beachside suburb has to offer, I hear you can even watch the display from the hot pools.

There’s also KidsFest for families from 6–21 July. Then in the depths of winter on Saturday 17 August, the Go Live Festival will be filling the Town Hall with local musicians.

If you aren’t too keen on big events, there’s still plenty to do. Head to one of the city’s markets, take a walk around the Botanic Gardens and through the Art Gallery, or park up at a café.

When winter comes around in Christchurch it’s not just about staying at home, rug up and get out there to enjoy everything happening around the city.
