In 2015, the Kilbirnie Festival you know and love will move to a wonderful new site at St Patrick's College, 10am - 4pm, both Saturday 28 Feb and Sunday 1 March. With so many free and creative activities, and heaps of music, it certainly is "Fun for ALL the Family!"

There will be a different promotion, in Bay Rd, run by the Kilbirnie Business Network and local retailers. This will be an entirely separate event. The Kilbirnie Festival you have attended in the past is moving to St Patrick's College. To differentiate between the two, our Kilbirnie Festival will add "...of Creativity" to its name: The Kilbirnie Festival of Creativity! Perfect!

This is the 20th consecutive fair day, for the eastern suburbs' biggest event and one of Wellington’s biggest festivals. Its a celebration! Kilbirnie Festival presents
over 150 craft & food stalls,
talent contest,
fairground rides and sideshows,
The Imaginarium,
Wheels Day,
a World Food Fair
and a Crafts Day,
lots of free kids activities and entertainment,
cage soccer & backyard cricket competitions,
giant chess,
competition, DJs,
and music on several stages,
which between them offer a broad range of original and covers music, entertainment and performances.

We will list all the performers on this website as the information is confirmed.

A feature this year is the “Twinkle Twinkle Little Stars!” talent competition for primary school kids. This raises funds for local primary schools, while providing great entertainment.

Fair Day cancellations on 384-1998 from 6am on the day.
