Kilbirnie Festival info, Sunday 9 March

Kilbirnie Festival, Sunday 9 March 2014.

Martin Wilson

Kilbirnie Festival
Sunday 9 March 2014

General Information
At 26 February 2014

The Kilbirnie Festival is now in its 19th consecutive year, and is one of Wellington’s biggest and longest-running outdoor community events. It is managed as a partnership between the Kilbirnie/Lyall Bay Community Centre and Martin Wilson of Capital Productions, and is supported by WCC. It attracts tens of thousands of visitors to Bay Rd annually on the second Sunday in March, starting at 10am and finishing at 4pm.

Locals are warmly invited to participate in any ways you like: performer, stallholder, information stall, fundraiser, membership drive, just attend and enjoy; or get in touch with your ideas.

There are well over 100 craft stalls from all over the region and New Zealand; plus, lots of food stalls, two excellent and interesting (usually at different times) stages, a kids activities area, kids rides area, and information displays.

We are lucky to host two nationally renowned performers, Rosita Vai and Ainslie Allen. Rosita had a major success in a recent TV talent show and her career has gone from strength to strength since. Being a local, we welcome her participation. She will be accompanied by renowned musician Alexey Medvedev. Ainslie Allen is also known for her TV appearances, as well as singing at major sports events, Christmas In The Park, and many other big events.  She has recently recorded a new album, “The A-Sides”, and will perform material from that along with other favourites.

Please contact these two artists above directly for photos and biography material.

Concert Stage:
Julie Lamb Band

A feature this year will be the Wellington Time Bank Kids’ Zone, an area where the little ones and their parents can enjoy a range of play facilities, for which there is no charge. The Wellington Time Bank is a community initiative whereby people trade an hour of their time with an hour of others’ time, accessing skills and experience and sharing their own. Time Banks are proving to be tremendous community-builders world-wide, replacing the lost sense of belonging and exchange. The Kids’ Zone will be in the Kilbirnie Plaza mall area.

Food stalls are regulated for hygiene; please see the craft and food stall applications for all prices and details. Terms and Conditions apply to all stalls.

There is no postponement day. Any cancellation will be on (04) 384-1998 from 6am on the day only.
