Community Events


You are welcome to join us for any of our regular groups that meet at the Centre. If you have a group or a club that you’d like to run, we’d love to support you with that! Get in touch here and let's work out the details together.


Art & Craft Market

September 7

Meet the makers, have a browse through a range of stalls. All products are NZ made, with the majority being made right here in Ōtautahi! The market is inside the community centre, while the Farmers Market is on outside so you can have a leisurely shop no matter the weather.

Mid Winter Mt Pleasant Art and Craft Market, Saturday 7th September, from 9.30am-12.30, at the Mt Pleasant Community Centre in conjunction with the weekly Farmers Market. Add this date to your diary, we look forward to seeing you there.

Many return traders and some exciting new ones, as a good mix for you to browse and purchase.

Raise the Roof Fundraiser

The fundraising campaign to finance the covering of the deck outside the Front Room Cafe has officially got underway. The aim is to make the area weatherproof so that it can be used in all weather. It consists of a louvre roof and clear plastic sides that can be rolled up in good weather - think Riverside or Ocean by the Sumner clocktower.

It doubles the number of tables that front on to the estuary, and allows a clear view of the Llew Summers sculpture, Flight.

It also means that it can be booked for functions such as birthdays and anniversaries.

Bright Idea

Got An Idea?

We are always looking to host new community groups. If you have an idea you'd like to try out for a club or regular group get in touch with Kaye here. We can provide the venue as well as support with promotion and admin related to your group. If you have a community not for profit group that is open to members of the public and looking for a home, we may be able to help with that, too.
