Waitangi Day Festival 2016

Ngati Whatua Orakei is proud to host Waitangi Day Festival 2016 on Saturday, February 6 at Takaparawhau (Bastion Point).

The annual festival commemorating the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi is also an opportunity to celebrate the historical origins of Tamaki Makaurau (Auckland), and bring together people from all cultures and communities.

Commemorating the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi by Māori chiefs and representatives of the British crown on 6th February 1840, join Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei to celebrate the occasion with this free event.

A great family focused event featuring a full day of outstanding live acts. Bring along a picnic, or enjoy kai from our wide range of stalls on site. In between acts, meander through the art and craft stalls, watch the giant Manu Aute kites or enjoy local acts on our whanau stage.

Keep the kids entertained with rides and a range of other great activities! This event is sure to be a great day for everyone that joins in the festivities. Performances kick off on the main stage, after the powhiri, at 11.30 am.

Don’t forget your hats and sunscreen, bring a rug and a sun brolly and find a seat in front of the main stage! Come along early to score yourself a good spot!

Please remember this event is strictly smoke, drug and alcohol free, with a focus on zero waste!

Many thanks to our sponsors and supporters for making this event possible; Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei Trust, Auckland Council, 2degrees, ATEED, Mai FM, Te Puni Kokiri, Ministry of Culture and Heritage
