Event Details

It is with regret that Auckland Live’s April School Holiday activation, the AOTEA SQUARE ARCADE along with STRING SYMPHONY is now being postponed until further notice.

This decision has been made due to the Covid-19 outbreak and the need to eliminate the risk of spread of the virus within Aotearoa. Auckland Live are sad to have to make this decision, but look forward to rescheduling this Aotea Square outdoor activation at a future date which will be confirmed in the coming months.  

Dancing, retro games and more!

Bring the whole family down to Aotea Square for a free day in the city. Play old school arcade games and locally-made indie video games on our larger-than-life outdoor Digital Stage.

Plus, Auckland Live kids are bringing back the ever-popular Dance-O-Mat! Choose your favourite song, crank up the music and cut loose to the beat on this free outdoor dance floor! You might even spot yourself live on the Digital Stage.

Children aged 14 and under must be accompanied by a caregiver who attends the event with the child.
