May the 4th Festival

  • Calendar Icon Tuesday, 4 May 2021, 3:00pm – 8:00pm
  • Location Icon Central Library Mezzanine Floor and Event Central


A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...we tried very hard not to breach copyright and hold a May the 4th celebration.

Join us from 3pm -8pm, in paying homage to all things Star Wars.

Celebrate with Virtual Reality, board and computer games. Displays, videos, figurines, interactive technology, crafts and trivia.

Dressing up is totally encouraged.

Things really kick off after 5.30pm when The Palmerston North Knights, (the local chapter of the New Zealand lightsaber guild) make an appearance.
They will teach you how to handle a lightsaber and some basic fighting moves.

Check out their video.

If you have an idea for an activity you would like us to provide or want to be involved let us know.
