Grab your copy of the Local Rag available in your room or it’s free around town. It’s put together by the awesome local folks at the Raglan Chronicle, you can check the latest edition online.


We reckon Raglan rocks! We kick the New Year off Raglan style with an epic old school New Years Eve float parade under the Bow Street palms and a fireworks display to blow city minds!

 The summer vibes keep coming with loads of local gigs, laneway vibes with the local Vinyl Club and Sunday sessions downtown in the at The Yot Club. Check their facebook page for weekly line ups. 

There’s plenty of other live music gigs around town in the bars.

But here’s the big one! Happy 20th birthdday Soundsplash! Against the back drop of Ngaranui, the main ocean beach, Soundsplash has grown to be a must-do on the summer festival circuit. There’s never been a summer like it for homegrown musical talent to uplift the mood of the nation.

We really don’t know how lucky we are to be to be in such a stunning location, chilling to the sweet sounds of our Kiwi music heroes, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Ladi 6, Che Fu, Troy Kingi and lots of new acts being announced.

This year is once again a sell-out show (and yes, sorry, we are sold out too for Soundsplash weekend) so be onto it early for 2022.

And while you’re in town, tune in to our Raglan Community Radio 98.1FM, we’re blessed with musical talent in this town.


Raglan Summer Markets Evening Eats

What smacks more of summer beach vibes than a mini food truck festival as the sun goes down? We’re super excited that the Evening Eats series is back in full swing at the Raglan Rugby Club over the summer. The kids will have a ball with face painting and space to run around while the big kids can relax with the sounds of local musos. We love our local food trucks Little Green Plant Based Cuisine, Raglan Falafel, Kaiwaka Kitchen and who can go past a Duck Island Ice Cream? In true Raglan style, BYO picnic blanket, bowls, cutlery, mugs and mates to make this a full fun and zero waste event.
