Birdman Wellington is back – bigger, better and more absurd than ever!
Taranaki St Wharf & Wellington’s Waterfront
10am - 5pm Monday 21 January 2013 – Wellington Anniversary Day
2014 Final competition entry details are not ready yet (as you can see , nor is our website!) - we'll announce when they are, so keep an eye here for them.
Stall and performer applications are ready, available from the Capital Productions website.
Flying into a harbour near you is the crazy Birdman Wellington, brought to you by Capital Productions, Forest & Bird and Wellington City Council. This is a fun family day out starting at 11am and finishing at 5pm, where you can enjoy Wellington’s wonderful waterfront against a backdrop of entertainment, stalls and of course the iconic Birdman Wellington Contest.
Spread your wings and explore your creativity. You could land yourself a fantastic prize and be crowned Birdman Wellington Champion 2014. Entries are open to individuals and teams, and judges are looking for fantastic costumes, dazzling showmanship and a big splash. Design a crazy flying costume and launch yourself off the specially-made “airstrip” on Taranaki Wharf. Kids have a chance to shine jumping from a floating platform for the "BirdKidz" junior Birdman Wellington contest for 8 to 12 year olds.
You also have the opportunity to use your Birdman antics to raise much needed funds for Forest & Bird. There are great prizes up for grabs!
There will be a whole rangeof fun and family-friendly activities to provide an entertaining day for all ages, including music stages, kids’ rides, food, market stalls, and quality NZ crafts.
Keep checking this site for updates.
