Taking place mid-winter every year, Matariki signals the Māori New Year and begins with the rising of the star cluster of the same name.

Tāmaki Makaurau, it's time to celebrate with over 20 special events and activations taking place on our waterfront from June 19 to July 11. From weaving workshops to large-scale art displays, open-air music, food events and retail spaces reimagined - there's something for everyone. Check out our printable map here
