Opunake Beach Carnival 2019

Saturday, January 05, 2019 10:00 AM

On the first Saturday after New Year's Day each year thousands gather under the Taranaki sun for the Opunake Beach Carnival which has been going strong since the early 1990's.

Run by the Opunake Beach Committee with fabulous support from local businesses, the carnival hosts a range of activities including the Miss Opunake, Miss Teen and Mr Muscle competitions, quick-fire raffles, craft and food stalls and the Big Dig - where children dig in the sand to find a winning popsicle stick. A jam-packed lineup of live local music and entertainment will ensure a great atmosphere throughout the day!

The Opunake Beach Carnival is the major fundraiser for Opunake Surf Life Saving Club projects at the beach. The generous support of carnival goers benefits the local community considerably - we look forward to seeing you this summer!
