Special Events

Take a trip down memory lane and celebrate the best of the past today, when the Vintage Weekend takes over Aotea Square!

Admire classic cars, fossick through treasures at the market, set up a prize winning picnic, watch the fashion parade and treat yourself to a vintage makeover at the Pamper Parlour. We’re open late and there are plenty of opportunities to learn some sweet dance moves before you groove the night away.
