Rotorua Night Market

Every Thursday night from 5pm – 9pm, the Rotorua Night Market offers a boutique-style shopping experience with the best selection of international street food. Patrons can enjoy live entertainment and share a table with fellow marketgoers who are made up of our local community members and both national and international visitors alike. Rated as one of the ‘must-do’ experiences in Rotorua, every Thursday for the last six years thousands of locals and visitors have enjoyed the Night Market.

On Thursday 15th June 2017 we will celebrate Matariki at the Rotorua Night Market with local kai, music and dance. We will be promoting the All Stars Parade and workshops for children to highlight the Maori New Year and the rising of the star cluster known as the Pleiades. We will project light and imagery reflecting our Maori culture and unique night sky around the market and surrounding buildings.
