All 120 penguins will be on display together for two days at the Air Force Museum.

For those who have used the Pop Up Penguins app and have yet to collect some of the penguin codes, will be able to pick up those missing codes over the weekend.

The official Pop Up Penguins souvenir guides will also be on sale. These are $5 and include images and information about all the penguins, as well as exclusive images taken by the official Pop Up Penguins photographer!

We’d love you to come along and join us as we celebrate the art and creativity displayed on the penguin sculptures that brought colour and joy to Christchurch over the summer.

After the Farewell Event, the small penguins will be returned to the schools that decorated them and the 50 large sponsored penguins will be sold at the Pop Up Penguins auction on Tuesday 16 February at the Air Force Museum. 75% of the auction proceeds will be donated to Cholmondeley Children’s Centre.

We invite you to support Cholmondeley and bring a gold coin donation to give to Cholmondeley at the Farewell Event. They will also be selling some exclusive Pop Up Penguins themed merchandise.
