General Collective and Interesting Things have teamed up to deliver The Auckland Anniversary Market and Whānau Festival, a fantastic two day boutique market and festival at The Cloud, Sunday 30 and Monday 31 January, and you’re invited!

Alongside General Collective’s curated market which will showcase the incredible talent of New Zealand’s creative community with high-quality homewares, accessories, jewellery and more, there is a full lineup of free entertainment and activities for the whole whānau to enjoy. 

No matter your age or musical talents, release your beats at the Kra KoTo Kra drumming circle with a lively lesson in West African drumming. Modeletto’s air-drying clay modelling workshops let you make a small jewellery bowl or olive dish to take home and the kids can unleash their creative flair in Paint and Create’s 3D ceramic painting workshops.    

Slip on some headphones and join the party in the Hedset Silent Party Zone featuring dance music from some of Auckland’s best DJs. Catch performances of Ngā Tohu o te Taiao, a te ao Māori arts reflection on the environment and seasons.

For the kids there’s free face painting by Rainbow Rascals, roving science demonstrations from Science in a Van and loose parts play with Junky Monkeys.

With some of Tāmaki Makaurau’s best food trucks on site to keep you fed, and coffee trucks, get your friends and whanau together and enjoy a great day out – good vibes, good food, good company in a stunning location.

The Auckland Anniversary Market and Whānau Festival is made possible by the Reactivate Tāmakai Makaurau Local Activation Fund, with support from Eke Panuku Development Auckland.

Bike Auckland will be onsite to supply valet bike parking and light servicing

To help keep the community safe vaccine passes will be required for entry and masks are strongly encouraged. Please do not attend if you are unwell, have been in contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19, or have recently been at a location of interest.
