  • Show map

The Newtown New World Community Stage is at the heart of the festival – slap bang in the middle of all the action – on the corner of Riddiford and Constable streets.

This stage is all about showcasing the people that enrich our local community – we always feature a mixed bag of cultural and community groups with the odd professional group thrown in there – a diverse lineup for a diverse suburb! We shine the spotlight on local musicians, performers and dancers – right from our own neighbourhood (the best neighbourhood) – Newtown! Our stage is programmed and supported by The Newtown Community Centre /  Te Whare Hapori o ngā Puna Waiora . Our local owner-operated New World also come to the (street) party by sponsoring the stage!

MCs: Karen O’Leary & Ness Quick
