The Festival of Play welcomes games and playful activities from different cultures all around the world, as well as new games they have been crafting. 

Join for a day full of outdoor games designed by playful folks from all across New Zealand. 

From 10am-2pm, they will be running a whole series of games for kids, parents and playful grown-ups - pirates, bees, chickens and more - active games, strategic games and everything in-between! 

Then, from 6pm-9pm, they will be running 'games for grown-ups' - games specifically designed for playful grown-ups. It will be dark by then, so be prepared for some special adventures!

The Wild Streets Festival of Play is supported by the Local Activation Fund Programme, administered by Auckland Unlimited on behalf of the New Zealand Government.
