Caboodle is the biggest day of the Vintage Weekend festivities.

20 January 2024

Caboodle takes over Whanganui’s town centre for over 14 hours during Vintage Weekend offering entertainment, food, fashion, a flea market and cars – all in a vintage-themed extravaganza.

Caboodle’s live entertainment includes music and fashion shows on three 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 on the mainstage, the official Caboodle Dinner and the Caboodle after party.

Caboodle brings the community together, including retailers, community groups, educators, vintage or steampunk enthusiasts, entertainers, and more.
