14 JUL - 1 AUG

This winter, Aotea Square will come alight with entertainment, food and unique interactive experiences for all, as part of Elemental AKL.

Hot in the Square is the Aotea Square Ice Rink and Ice Slide, the perennial magical winter playground for kids and grownups, now in its ninth year bang smack in the middle of the city.

When it’s time to get toasty again, Container in the Square Café is right next door. Grab a table in the covered courtyard, enjoy live music and soak up the hum of the Square. 

For the coolest private dining experience in town, book yourself a cosy winter Snug! Kitted out with comfy furniture, blankets and heaters, the five geodesic domes make the perfect spots for sharing an intimate winter catch-up with friends, team lunches, birthday parties or pre-show meals.

Presiding over the Square, the Auckland Live Digital Stage will be screening highlights from Go Further South, following an extraordinary icy expedition island-hopping across the Southern Ocean towards Antarctica.

The city’s favourite immersive food experience, the Auckland Night Markets, will be offering authentic cuisine from all over the world at street-food prices.

Open until late every day from 14 July - 1 August, Elemental Aotea Square is the perfect place to sample the best of what Auckland has to offer this winter.
Elemental in Aotea Square is part of Elemental AKL, a collection of more than 40 events taking place across Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland celebrating culture, cuisine and creativity. For the full programme go to
