It is best to have a committee made up of individuals passionate about the event and who are willing to give their time to making it a success.
Your event, your way
It is important to note the Te Anau Events Co-ordinators do not run the events for the committees. Their main role is to support committees in holding a successful event.
To apply for support from Te Anau Events please email with details of the event, and provide an outlook of how your event will run. The Event Co-ordinators will then be in touch to set a meeting time to discuss the ideas. Or visit us in our local office, Te Anau Events office is located 41 Town Centre (upstairs in the Hollyford Lounge at Distinction Luxmore Hotel).
