Spring into Tawa started in the year 2000, established by local business owners keen to have a market day in the main shopping area. By around 2010, the event was being run by the Tawa Ratepayers and Progressive Association and members of the Tawa Community Board.
In 2016, the Ratepayers and Progressive Association rebranded as Vibrant Tawa and sought to refresh the local market day. An organising committee was formed to grow the event. For the first time, the Main Road of Tawa was closed in the main shopping area, allowing the event to grow.
