It’s that time of the year again, the lights are on full display and you’re placing a star on top of the tree, trying to decide what exactly you’ll be doing for the holidays this year. Instead of worrying how you’ll be making the time to visit all your friends and family separately this holiday season, make a plan to all come together at this year’s Coca-Cola Christmas in the Park event.

Showcasing some hard to miss acts this year, Kiwi superstars The Koi Boys will be performing at the Auckland show along with the award-winning singer/songwriter Hollie Smith who will be headlining both events.

Award-winning singer/songwriter Hollie Smith will be headlining at both events.

The supporting line-up is just as exciting, not only will it include Lavina Williams, Caleb Jago-Ward, Maaka Fiso, Jessie Cassin, Ella Monnery and Josh Leys but they’ll also be accompanied onstage by backing vocalists Anna Grahame, Paul Fagamalo and Iri Aumatangi.

“In addition to our fabulous headline acts, we found some exceptional new talent from all over New Zealand,” said Dixon Nacey, Creative Director.

“They’re excited and keen to be part of an event that has launched the careers of so many Kiwi performers over the last two decades.” 

Taking place in Christchurch’s Hagley Park on 25 November and in the Auckland Domain on 9 December 2017, Sandhya Pillay, General Manager of Coca-Cola Oceania is excited to bring the event to the two cities.

“It’s a great way to celebrate the start of the festive season by bringing families and communities together at New Zealand’s biggest free outdoor musical celebration.”

More than just an event where you can catch up with old friends and family, since 1994 Coca-Cola Christmas in the Park has raised millions of dollars for the country’s charities. This year it will continue its contribution to Youthline, who help support and develop over 50,000 young people every year.

So don’t just stay at home these holidays, instead gather your nearest and dearest and make it a Christmas to remember not just for you, but for those who need the extra help too.
