DayBreak Celebration

As the sun sets on DayBreak 2024, we’re going to seize those rays and celebrate innovation and creativity across Tauranga Moana.

The DayBreak Celebration is the opportunity to celebrate innovation and creativity in a surprising, multi-sensory and interactive way. Featuring music by Laughton Kora, art by Isaac Weston (thanks to Creative Bay of Plenty), and innovative culinary delights (thanks to Flavours of Plenty, Mount Made, Dabblers Gin and Bay Catering), the DayBreak celebration will immerse you in some of the region’s creativity and innovation and is a great way to wrap up the festival and connect with Tauranga’s business, innovation and creative communities

Experience creative cocktails and canapes, styling by Lucy's and a showcase of Bay of Plenty's innovation powerhouses throughout this mix and mingle event with fellow social innovators, creators, entrepreneurs, inventors, marketers, engineers, artists, scientists, business people and changemakers.

Tickets are strictly limited, and they will sell out! So catch the DayBreak and grab your tickets to DayBreak Celebration now!
