Your Event

Find out more about hosting your next event with us

Te Rauparaha Arena has a number of options for promoting your event throughout the venue or on our website.


We have options for promoting your event on the Te Rauparaha Arena and Porirua City Council’s websites and Facebook pages. We also promote our events on EventFinda. All of these options are included as part of the extensive service our event staff offer.


Porirua is one of the region's fastest growing and commercially developing areas, and the Kapi-Mana is the newspaper that keeps the local population informed on upcoming event's. A 30% discount savings on the normal rate is applied if you promote your event through them. 


We have four screens throughout the venue promoting upcoming events, plus a billboard outside the building and LED roadside signage at the entrance to the driveway.


There are 12 single banner poles located on Te Rauparaha Arena driveway, giving exposure to traffic and pedestrians from Parumoana Street. A handling fee per banner pole is applicable. Please liaise with your Event Co-ordinator with your requirements.


Welly Wi-Fi is an open public network that is accessible throughout the venue. There is a maximum usage of 100mb of data per device per 24 hours.

Te Rauparaha Arena has an in-house Wi-Fi network, offering easy-to-use, high speed wireless internet. Access can be arranged on a daily basis, at a cost of $10 per day or $30 for a week, per device.

Should you require wired broadband, please discuss your requirements with your Event Coordinator during the planning process, and costs can be discussed based on your specific requirements.

Contact Us about how our Event Co-ordinators can help promote your event.

Ticketed events must be sold through our preferred ticketing agency Ticketek.

Tickets can be made available for purchase from:

  • TheTicketek website or by phone: 
  • Onsite at Te Rauparaha Arena
  • At other Ticketek event venues throughout New Zealand

A separate ticketing contract applies. A Licensing Fee will apply for ticketing of events. Please discuss your requirements with your Event Co-ordinator.

Te Rauparaha Arena may waive the compulsory ticketing for events with an entry price of less than $10 per adult. Conditions apply so please discuss your requirements with your Event Coordinator.

Te Rauparaha Arena has 220 free car parks, plus 8 disability parks in the main car park for customers. There is a separate car park with 26 parks for event organisers to utilise during their event. Access for this is off Lyttelton Ave.

If demand for car parks is expected to be high and it is anticipated the limited parking spaces will not be sufficient we ask that event organisers encourage visitors to maximize public transport. A Parking Management Plan may be required to be supplied for large events.

Where large events are scheduled to take place after 5.30pm, the Event Co-ordinator can liaise with the Operations Managers of surrounding businesses (i.e. Harvey Norman and the Mega Centre) to seek consent to allow the use of their parking areas.

Te Rauparaha Arena has a close relationship with the team from FunctionMaster, who can cater to your every need, from nibbles for a cocktail function, to plated meals for 2000+ people, nothing is too big or too small.
