Pop up Porirua 

Pop up Porirua is an initiative run by the Porirua City Council and Porirua Chamber of Commerce. This initiative is part of a wider programme to bring new vitality and energy into the CBD including new public spaces that will attract children and families into the city centre.

The initiative is dedicated to small business owners, artists, and community organisations interested in a short-term opportunity to showcase their business or venture in the heart of Porirua. This will give you the opportunity to promote and test your brand in our market so you can attract new customers, increase sales and gain greater community awareness of your venture.

We believe that new business, community events and art activations are the key to bringing our city to new heights. Our goal is to help interested parties secure a building for their pop up activation.

We need YOU!

If you have an idea for a business, art exhibition or community focused pop up we want to hear from you. Specifically, we are looking for ventures that have local application and a level of uniqueness not found in a normal shopping centre. If this sounds like you, please complete our short application form.

The pop ups will demonstrate a high standard of delivery and incorporate at least one of the following:

  • Unique businesses
  • Art exhibitions
  • Food experiences
  • Community focussed
  • Sustainability focussed
  • Family friendly
  • Youth focussed
  • Local
  • Cultural
  • Harbour related
