Christmas cheer heads to Waihī Beach

The countdown to Christmas has well and truly begun, and Santa’s gearing up to visit the idyllic holiday hot spot, Waihī Beach. On Saturday, December 16, from 8am to noon, the Saturday Farmers’ Market at Waihī Beach School will transform into a festive community event for the whole family.
This Christmas Market will have something for everyone, especially the little ones. Kids can have a pony ride or challenge themselves with a game of giant inflatable tenpin bowling or football, plus much more. While the kids are entertained, adults can explore the popular Saturday Farmers’ Market, which is shaping up to be their biggest Market to date.
With an array of food and drink stalls, fresh local produce, arts and crafts, live music, and entertainment from Waihī Beach School. And let’s not forget the main attraction – Santa Claus himself. At 10am, Santa will make a special appearance at the Christmas Market, spreading Christmas cheer and bringing smiles to children’s faces.
“The Christmas Market is all about community and the kids. We want every kid to leave grinning from ear to ear. Admission is free, so gather your whanau and friends and join us for a fun festive morning,” events manager Matt Nicholson said. More info: or
