Carterton Set to Celebrate with Stan Walker

Internationally renowned singer songwriter Stan Walker is coming to Carterton to celebrate with our community and deliver a one-off youth focused concert on Sat 8th April 2023.

Our audience will be the first to hear new tracks live from Stan’s latest studio album All In, which serves as a narrative of his life. This special performance, supported by Stan’s six-piece band, will also feature songs from the groundbreaking album, Te Arohanui, Stan’s first in te reo Māori.

Ka Pai Carterton has led the charge to bring this iconic young Māori role model to the Wairarapa, having consistently heard about the challenges that local youth face.

"Stan Walker's message of perseverance and overcoming obstacles is one that all community’s should be exposed to." commented Ka Pai facilitator Cimone Grayson. "We wish to inspire our rangatahi and all whānau to become the best version of themselves by sharing in Stan’s story.”

The concert, and a special community Q&A with Stan Walker, will provide the highlights in a 3-day series of events hosted by Ka Pai Carterton, celebrating arts, culture and identity within the Carterton community.

A series of community-led workshops will run throughout the Easter weekend including Singer/Songwriter, Kapa Haka and Dance, with tickets from $10 available at the Carterton Events Centre or online at

An outpouring of support from local businesses and organisations has ensured that a significant number of free tickets are available for youth and community volunteers to access, email to find out more.
