Celebrate Auckland Anniversary Weekend on Your Waterfront

Auckland Anniversary Weekend on the waterfront is shaping up to be one of the best anniversary celebrations the waterfront has ever seen. We are excited to see the revitalised waterfront host an awesome line-up of events offering something for everyone’s taste.

There are also lots of free activities to get amongst throughout the weekend. So say happy 173rd birthday to the City of Sails by watching waka and dragon boat races, taking a boat ride, catching a busker as you stroll the promenade or just chill out with some awesome live music.

Congratulations to Brent Neighbour who has won a double pass to Auckland Seafood Festival for signing up to the Your Waterfront newsletter – enjoy!
