heart of the city through events & retail
promotions throughout the year.
We are proud to bring you iconic events such as the Mainstreet Caboodle,

We also run smaller events to compliment activities that are happening in our community.
Retail promotions also occur through the calendar year - TBA for 2020, due to Covid19!

Mainstreet Caboodle:

The Mainstreet Caboodle is always the Saturday of Wellington Anniversary Weekend and is a part of the Vintage Weekend Festivities.

Once again the Caboodle will run for over 14 hours within the town centre – encompassing entertainment, music, food, fashion, vintage motor vehicles & steampunk all in a vintage themed extravaganza.

The day sees live entertainment: music & fashion shows via 3 stages, street performers throughout the Mainstreet, a family zone, vintage / classic vehicles lining the street, street food vendors, steampunk enthusiasts, a vintage market and so much more. The evening comes to life with more live music via the mainstage, a themed dinner & a 'Swanky Caboodle After-Party'. 

There is truly something for everyone at the iconic Mainstreet Caboodle!

Keep an eye on our Facebook Page for all the details!

The next Mainstreet Caboodle is on 23 January 2021.
