Welcome to Rotorua’s three-day New Year Festival

Following a successful first year, Rotorua GLO Festival is retuning this New Year with a range of events taking place over three days to celebrate the New Year. This year’s events will include a Family Party in the Park on December 31, The First Big Brunch on New Year’s Day and a new event, Summer Fiesta, at the Night Market.

The events follow on from the success of last year’s inaugural GLO Festival, which was developed to offer a range of activities for all ages and cultures, especially families.

Two of New Zealand’s top X Factor stars, winner Jackie Thomas and runner up Whenua Patuwai will headline Party in the Park. The concert will start at 6pm and finish with an earlier fireworks display at 9pm, allowing children and their families to be a part of the New Year’s festivities. This will be followed up with an exciting fireworks display at midnight.

Other GLO events include the First Big Brunch on New Year’s Day, where families are invited to bring a picnic and enjoy the free live music at the Village Green together and Summer Fiesta an out of the ordinary Night Market.
