Wednesdays on Wellesley

An Eating and Live Entertainment Adventure Every Wednesday 15 Nov - 20 Dec

Swing into summer with a range of roving street performances and delicious fare offered by a number of much-loved central city restaurants on Wellesley Street.

Every Wednesday, from 20 November to 15 December, there will be a different cultural performance to complement the cuisines served by the participating restaurants. 

The first performance on 15 November will be from Marimba Bowie, a group of musicians from Auckland's top Mexican fusion band Carnivorous Plant Society. Performing on a giant Marimba with trumpet and drums, their music is similar to the traditional Mexican marimba playing found in Oaxaca. 

The upcoming performances will be revealed on the event Facebook page closer to the time.
