This event has been cancelled

UPDATE 24 Jan 2022: Auckland Live, our partners and artists involved in Auckland Live Summer in the Square regret to announce that due to New Zealand being in Covid-19 Red Traffic Light setting indefinitely, all events scheduled from Friday 28 January - 26 February will not be going ahead. Due to the nature of the events planned and difficulty safely distancing or capping audience numbers in Aotea Square, the events are now postponed until further notice.  The welfare and safety of our artists, staff and audiences will remain our first priority.  


The circus is in town! Auckland Live's Summer in the Square is presenting Circus Weekend!

Be dazzled by a family-friendly line-up of incredible aerial acrobatics with hilarious flips, slips, and a whole lot of tricks. Catch a free show in the Square with some of New Zealand’s best circus performers, or try your hand at some of the interactive activities on offer.
