Just five days out from Christmas, a slew of the country's most talented artisans will descend on Eden Park for the ultimate festive market. That's right, on Sunday December 20 New Zealand's most famous stadium will be ditching sports in favour of all things festive, with General Collective bringing the goods one final time this Christmas market season.
Dig into epic eats courtesy of the Auckland Food Truck Collective, enjoy sick beats from the Christmas DJ, and take part in an epic 'Believe It Or Not' quiz on the stadium’s new 1700-inch Samsung Superscreen hosted by Sky (who, in fact, are putting on the event).
Get your snap with Santa who’ll be in his grotto high in the stands and don't forget to donate some coin on the day, which will go straight to the Auckland City Mission.
The event will take place right on Eden Park’s hallowed turf that some of the world’s most famous athletes have graced and that has played host to countless epic matches during its 17-year tenure. If you can’t bear to see the grass go when it’s replaced next year, there’s also the option to purchase a little, or a lot of the history-making turf.
