What’s on in Otago this July

There’s something fun for kids big and small these winter school holidays; 10 - 25 July, with more events throughout the month.

This Friday 2 July, catch local sensations Drax Project and Mitch James with Special Guest AACACIA live at the Dunedin Town Hall. From 2 July to 16 July, celebrate Matariki with a festival unique to Dunedin - Puaka Matariki - a programme of community and digital events all about wānaka (learning) and whanaukataka (community spirit). For a great night out in support of breast cancer research, get some mates together for Fashion for a Cure, 7 July at the Emersons Brewery, complete with catwalk, canapés and the latest from premier fashion labels.

Get fired up for the school holidays on 10 July with Light Up Winter, a family night out in Cromwell with live music and performances, a night market of winter goodies, the mass lantern release, a ’light up your hat’ competition and parade. The NZ International Science Festival always brings curiosity and wonder to Dunedin with workshops, shows and activities - check out the full 2021 programme of inspiring events taking place across the city 8 - 18 July.

For more school holiday entertainment, get along to this year’s Gang Show - Mayhem at the Museum.
