Wagga Marketplace – Celebrating 25 years

Celebrating 25 years

Since first opening its doors in 1996, Wagga Marketplace welcomed a new standard of shopping into the Wagga community. Starting with just 30 stores and growing to over 70 specialty stores, 25 years on Wagga Marketplace is still a much loved and thriving fixture in today’s community. And, of course, with a milestone as big as 25 years, it is cause to celebrate, and celebrate we shall.

The festivities will be kicking off on the 17th March, and our 25th Birthday, and will continue until the 19th March. We will be celebrating in a few fun ways that will be sure to surprise and delight all who come celebrate with us. From $25 gift cards, limited edition Wagga 25 tote bags, and handmade cookies, to even surprising some lucky shoppers by paying for their purchases, this is sure to be a celebration to remember, and one you won’t want to miss.

Of course the 25th Birthday celebrations aren’t all we’ve got in store for you. Over March and April our calendars are full to the brim with fun and exciting events for you and your family to enjoy:


Mardi Gras – 4 March to 12 March 2022

The Centre is all decked out to celebrate Mardi Gras, from Forsyth Street Stairs donning rainbow colours, to the rainbows on the Baylis Street  entrance doors. We’ve also got a photo op for you set up in Centre that you won’t want to miss.


International Women’s Day – 8 March 2022

There have been many amazing women who have helped make Wagga Marketplace a great place to be over the past 25 years. So to celebrate International Women’s Day, we’ve shared the stories of these incredible women.


Neighbour Day – 27 March 2022

We’ve been lucky enough to be home to some of your memories over the past 25 years, so to celebrate Neighbour Day, we’re putting together an interactive showcase in Centre, where you can see the Centre through the years and share some of your memories with us.


School Holiday Entertainment – 11 April to 22 April 2022

These school holidays are a great time to get down to Wagga Marketplace, with activities running for two weeks, there is lots of fun to be had. With our 25th Birthday having just passed, we want to keep sharing the celebrations with you, so don’t miss out on helping create art that’ll be installed in the centre to mark the occasion. And, if you help out, you might just get a little surprise.

We can’t wait to celebrate 25 years with you, and to help you create more memories at Wagga Marketplace.
