National Crate Day


The days are getting longer and the weather’s getting hotter which means we’re on the doorstep to summer. To celebrate this awesome time of year, we're gearing back up for National Crate Day on Saturday 2nd December.

Created by our very own Duncan Heyde, National Crate Day is all about celebrating the first Saturday of summer with mates in true kiwi style - by whacking some meat on the barbie, playing some highly competitive backyard cricket and of course, listening to The Rock’s Cratest Backyard Anthems VERY LOUDLY.

Grab your official merch (singlets, flags, jandals, caps, bottle coolers) now from The Rock Emporium. But hurry, things are selling fast!

Note: order before 27/11 to receive your Crate Day merch before Saturday 2 December. Any order after this date will not arrive in time.

Score yourself a backyard set up just by showing us your backyard set up.

Simply upload a pic of your National Crate Day gathering with #crateday and you could score yourself a BBQ, meat pack, BYC kit, Rock merch & $1,000 cold hard cash! Ts and Cs apply.
