Browns Bay holds several free community events and ‘shop local’ promotions each year to involve and thank the community for their loyalty to our local businesses, as well as and attracting visitors from further afield. Our signature event is the annual Browns Bay Christmas Parade which attracts up to 10,000 visitors. We also love having outdoor movies on the beach reserve in a perfect summertime setting, and Father’s Day Boys Toys (first Sunday in September) is becoming a very popular recurring family event.
March 4 @ 10:00 am – 7:00 pm UTC+12
Browns Bay beach reserve is a beautiful summer destination! Bring your friends and whanau along to our free family festival for a fun day at the seaside.

Outstanding local artists will perform on stage between 3pm and 7pm. Guaranteed to get the party started, Red Tonik will be first up.

This event is funded by Browns Bay businesses and Hibiscus & Bays Local board, so we encourage you to support our town centre shops, restaurants and cafes while you’re in town. Grab some takeaways or book your favourite restaurant at the beach so you don’t miss out.
