This event has been cancelled.

EVENT UPDATE (Friday 2 Feb): "Unfortunately the decision has been taken this morning to cancel Moana Oceania Mākete due to unsafe high winds forecasted for tomorrow." 


Have you tried Tongan Kapisis Pulu? How about the Cook Island’s Ika Mata? Tasted Fiji’s Kokodo, or Samoan Pani popo? These are just a sample of the Pacific flavours that could be on the menu at the inaugural Moana Oceania Mākete.

Taking place on the Base Spaces in Wynyard Quarter overlooking Te Waitematā, come and experience authentic Pacific Island food, cultural performances, and crafts at a family day celebrating the many Pacific connections we have here in Aotearoa.

Moana Oceania Mākete's long term aim is to build a representation of all 16 Pacific islands living here in Tāmaki Makaurau, including Māori culture, with a food and culture element for each. This year, you can look forward to experiencing a taste of Hawaiian, Kuki Airani, Fijian, Samoan culture and more.

Mākete-goers will also be treated to 12 different cultural performances, including Anuanua Performance Art Troupe, Tatau Dance Academy, Niuean singer songwriter Mal Lakatani, Samoan Hip Hop artist Tha Feelstyle, and more to be announced.

This is the innagural event. Moana Oceania Mākete, 2024. Be there!
