The victorious Emirates Team New Zealand will parade the Auld Mug through the streets of Wellington next week.
A lunchtime parade on Tuesday 11 July has just been announced.
Acting Wellington Mayor Paul Eagle said the festivities would give people from central New Zealand the chance to pay tribute to "the steely heroics of our sailors".
"These guys, including Wellington's own Josh Junior, thrilled New Zealanders as they skimmed across the water in Bermuda.
"They were the epitome of grace under pressure and they were bloody brave. Those catamarans are not for the faint of heart.
"It'll be great if people from the region can gather and give these guys the welcome home they really deserve."
The celebration will start at Parliament at noon, before parading through town along Lambton Quay, on to Willis Street, finishing with a welcome and speeches in Civic Square.
