Fun, friends and whānau this Waitangi Day

Fun, friends and whānau this Waitangi Day


Celebrate Waitangi Day with live entertainment, food stalls, arts and craft markets and workshops at Barry Curtis Park on Thursday 6 February.

Waitangi Day Celebrations 2014 is a free event brought to you by Auckland Council and is a great opportunity to celebrate with family and friends.

Auckland Mayor Len Brown says that this is a special day, celebrating tangata whenua and who we are as Aucklanders today.

“Te Tiriti o Waitangi and our Māori culture set us apart in the world. Waitangi Day is a perfect time to acknowledge the history and diversity of Auckland, and of New Zealand,” he says.

“There will be a mihi whakatau led by mana whenua at 10am and I invite anyone interested to come and join us.”

With record breaking Pacific Music Award winner Aaradhna and heaps of home-grown talent like the young performers of Pao Pao Pao!, the powerhouse voice of Ria Hall and Vodafone New Zealand Music Award winner David Dallas this is a definite must-do event.
