1st Official Tauranga Bomb Comp

Tauranga’s new tidal stairs and pier are the newest attraction of the city centre. We will celebrate this incredible feature on our waterfront with the 1st Official Tauranga Bomb Competition on Saturday, 6 May.

Registrations for the bomb comp are closed now.

Music and Entertainment

We’re excited to announce Ijebu Pleasure Club are heading to Tauranga to play at the waterfront. Ijebu Pleasure Club is an Auckland based Afro-beat band. They blend the Afrofunk style of Fela Kuti with hits from the 80’s.

Acoustic stomp remixer of the old and new Josh Pow Music has just been confirmed to perform at the waterfront. Josh started out on busking on the streets of Tauranga central and Mount Mainstreet, but quickly developed a good name for himself amongst the community.
