Nau mai, haere mai – your whole whānau are warmly invited to celebrate Matariki, the Māori New Year!
Come down to Odlins Plaza and the Whairepo Lagoon on Wellington's waterfront to experience our new event, Ahi Kā.
Celebrate and learn about the Māori New Year with fire, food, friends and whānau.
See some of the nation's finest Māori performers and storytellers including SOUNZ composers, and experience a beautiful light parade featuring creative talent from nine local schools, dancers and circus performers.
