Mt Eden Village Centre In March
We have lots of busy weekends for all ages at the Mt Eden Village Centre this March. With all our classes during the week also, it’s a great time to visit. Feel free to forward this newsletter to family and friends.
You are invited to our much loved Little Day Out free family fun day here at the Mt Eden Village Centre on Saturday 7 March. Events and workshops run from 10.00am to 1.00pm so bring the kids, the grandkids and those young at heart to celebrate our Mt Eden community. This is a free family event with a kids’ only market, animal encounter, pony rides, workshops, animal blessing, a children’s art competition, face painting, a magic show and much more. There will also be delicious food to enjoy as well as live music. For our young artists, create a ‘Tree for Climate Change’ out of any medium or materials for our Art Competition and display.
The Little Day Out is organised by the Mt Eden Methodist Church Charitable Trust with generous support from Ray White Mt Eden, the Albert-Eden Local Board and local businesses to celebrate the great community we live in. Programme details and Art Competition information are listed at the end of this newsletter and on our website here.
Another iconic annual event in the Village is the Artists in Eden Day on Saturday 21 March. Based in Essex Reserve and spilling over to the Village Centre, you can watch Artists at work creating stunning works from 10.00am to 2.00pm. This is followed by an Auction of these works at 2.30pm. Come along and talk to the Artists or watch an artwork progress from start to finish. This is the gala event of the Eden Arts calendar and we are so fortunate as a community to celebrate more than 30 years of Artists in Eden. Information about the Artists and the event, as well as fantastic images, is here.
Other iconic events to round out our March weekends is the Mt Eden Village Craft Market on Saturday 14 March from 10.00am to 4.00pm. There will be a great variety of interesting stalls to browse. A feature of the Market is that items are handmade in New Zealand by expert crafters. It’s an opportunity to support local artists and find loads of beautiful handmade treasures and tasty treats, perfect for yourself or to gift. And the Mt Eden Wellbeing Market is on Saturday 28 March from 10.00am to 3.00pm. Central Auckland’s regular monthly mind, body and spirit Market has natural health therapies, advice and nutritional support, on-site massage, natural first aid kits and home remedies and much, much more. More information is here.
