Plans for Civic Centre Open Day progress

Civic Centre Opening

Plans for the Matamata-Piako Civic and Memorial Centre open day and street party are progressing. But we need your help to make this a fantastic day.

We have confirmed gourmet food trucks from Hamilton Gardens will be selling delicious hot food on the day. Many community groups have also registered to run raffles, sell crafts and provide entertainment.

We will be running workshops inside the new centre, and you’ll get to see the meeting rooms and Memorial Hall in use for the first time. We are closing the street so that we can provide the festive atmosphere suitable for the opening of a district facility. And we’ll be unveiling a unique piece of artwork to celebrate and unite the district.

If you have a food or craft stall, enjoy facepainting or stilt walking, or want to perform on a stage with a guaranteed audience, please let us know at

Don’t forget to mark the date on your calendar - Saturday 14 April, 12-4pm.
