What is this event all about?

Christmas in the Park proudly brings together amazing Christmas themed events and Taupo traditions into a Christmas Themed Festival.

Back in 2009 we launched a brand new Christmas themed event called Christmas in the Pool on Christmas Eve.
At its core was a desire to bring the meaning and joy of Christmas for FREE to Taupo.
To entertain with amazing Christmas Carols.
To be a Christmas season highlight for all those who attended.

Then in 2017 Taupo District Council asked us to bring all the best of that event along with adding some of Taupo's firm holiday time favourites together, to create something truly special that we call Christmas in the Park.

We are currently rebuilding these iconic series of events and moments on your calendar. Think of this as your "I can't wait for Christmas" moment where we will give you bucket loads of Christmas spirit, good times and joyful memories.

Instead of trying to host all our stable of events in one day, we are shifting to a multi-day festival style model. This year is about re activation and 2023 will see all our new initiatives.

See you at Christmas in the Park 2022!
