What’s involved in putting together Coca-Cola Christmas In The Park

30th December 2016

What does it take to bring together NZ’s largest free Christmas Event?

Coca-Cola Christmas in the Park has been a New Zealand institution since 1994. The free family event attracts well over 100,000 people each year and has become a regular day out for a generation of kiwi families.

From the very first show, we have helped raise millions of dollars for a number of local charities such as Cure Kids, Surf Life Saving NZ and of course, Youthline who have been the charity partner of Coca-cola Christmas In The Park for the past 8 years.

Have you ever thought about what it takes to bring together NZ’s largest free musical event? What kind of organisation goes on behind the scenes, what does our charity partner do on the night and how it feels to be standing in front of one of the biggest audiences in NZ?

These are the questions we look to answer in 3 mini Coca-Cola Christmas In The Park documentaries through the eyes of the people and organisations involved. Click below to find out what Coca-Cola Christmas in the Park means to the people and organisations involved:
