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.
Whale Tales Art Trail, Auckland 2022
January 24 – April 18 UTC+12
IN JANUARY 2022, A TRULY IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE CELEBRATING AOTEAROA, ART, AND MARINE CONSERVATION COMES TO TĀMAKI MAKAURAU. WHALE TALES IS A PUBLIC ART TRAIL EXPLORING THE CITY OF SAILS, AND YOU’RE INVITED!
From 24 January – 18 April 2022 a trail of unique and stunning whale tail sculptures, designed by artists and children, sponsored by business and organisations will animate Tāmaki Makaurau and bring to life themes of protecting and restoring the mauri of our Ocean. Inspired by the Bryde’s Whale, these 80 sculptures will dot Auckland’s streets, parks, and open spaces to provide residents and visitors a fresh opportunity to explore the City of Sails. This is a family-friendly trail that promises to be loads of fun for everyone.
The legacy of Whale Tales will continue long after the fun of the trail has ended with the sculptures being auctioned to raise significant funds to power the vital work WWF-New Zealand does to look after our moana (ocean) and her marine life throughout Aotearoa, particularly in and around the Hauraki Gulf.
Browns Bay is excited to be one of the locations that will display a whale tail, and we can’t wait to show it off. You can read more about this fantastic event and, and about the tail that the Browns Bay Business Association has sponsored here.
