Coming Soon! Auckland Heritage Festival.

See Aotea Square in its former glory using a new augmented reality app bringing the 1800s to 2020; hear why women weren’t expected to respond to the call of nature in public places until 1910; and prepare to be intrigued by unexpected artefacts found in the rubble of recent city works.

These are just some of the stories Auckland Heritage Festival is weaving into words, walks, pictures, parks, talks, poetry and songs as Auckland Council prepares to pack well over 100 free and low-cost events into two weeks from 26 September to 11 October 2020.

The programme of events has been designed to entertain, inform and enlighten with 2020’s intriguing theme: Uncover secrets and stories of Tāmaki Makaurau.

Learn about past generations of famous and infamous Aucklanders, discover the stories of our oldest places and spaces and touch on our best-kept secrets.

Over the two weeks that Auckland Heritage Festival is taking place, there will be loads of free and low-cost events to get amongst. These events will be released soon (September 10th), keep an eye out for updates here in the coming days!
