Estuary Festival

The 2023 Festival will be held on Saturday 25 February, 1-5pm on the reserve next to the community centre. 

Come along to our annual family fun day celebrating Christchurch/Ōtautahi's wonderful Avon-Heathcote Ihutai estuary.

You will have plenty of plenty of opportunities to learn more about wetlands and estuary environments as well as enjoy fabulous fairground rides like the Bouncy Castles, Bumper Boats and Wipe Out. On the stage will be a variety of performers providing you with music to ease the day as you enjoy tasty treats from the various food trucks.


Free admission though some rides cost $3 to 5. All welcome.

This festival could not run without the help of our many volunteers. From being part of the planning team to supervising the rides and games and helping with set up on the day. If you'd like to volunteer to help on festival day, contact Jackie
