Held at the heart of Tutanekai Street, Rotorua Night Market comes to life once every week and brings with it a platform where local artists can showcase their talents with a plethora of handmade art and crafts, among other things. This market spreads its wings when Tutanekai Street is closed off from Haupapa to Hinemoa Street for one night and is transformed into a lively place with vibrant LED lights, innumerable stalls, and live entertainment.
From dishes that will make your mouth water to mesmerizing paintings to handmade attire, this place is a maze of different products that will inevitably draw you towards them.
Moreover, the Rotorua Night Market comes alive with groovy music, dance performances, as well as orchestras, all of which are sure to make you dance a little by yourself, while you look around for trinkets to buy and food to taste.
With stalls lined along the Tutanekai Street, Rotorua Night Market specializes mainly in delicious ethnic dishes, a few of which are handmade Italian Pasta, French Patisseries, the delectable Kai, a variety of fries, Cheesy Buskers, different types of wine, and a hot cup of coffee.
Apart from these, you may also find dishes from the Indian and Croatian cuisines, among others. The price range varies from stall to stall, and for your convenience, food menus are displayed in front of almost every stall, thus making it easier for you to choose!
The prime highlight of the Rotorua Night Market is the stage that is set up in order to welcome any performer who wishes to showcase their skills. Local bands, singers, choreography groups, and solo dancers often take the audience in awe of their performances.
The best part about the stage is that it is also welcome to anyone who has made an impromptu decision to go out there and perform. So, if you are one who can dance or sing or recite poems or have a unique sense of humor, you are always free to give it a go!
