THIS EVENT IS POSTPONED

Last evening Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Director-General of Health Dr. Ashley Bloomfield announced Auckland will move into COVID-19 Alert Level 3 from midday Wednesday, August 12th to Friday, August 14th.

In respect of the government’s request, W Love Aotearoa have postponed their celebrations, which were planned to take place this weekend, Saturday 15 & Sunday 16 August, at Queens Wharf in Auckland. This includes the following events:
– We Love Aotearoa – Whānau Fun Day
– We Love VR

The international group of friends behind the campaign are confident the people of Aotearoa will overcome this setback as valiantly as they have done before. “We look forward to rescheduling We Love Aotearoa and celebrating New Zealand’s success yet again. Kia kaha and much aroha to all.” says event founder, Gabe Newell.

The We ♥ Aotearoa, Whānau Fun Day, and We ♥ VR events were created to celebrate the ‘the team of 5 million’ and their great accomplishments as a united country. The celebration was created by a group of friends from around the world who found themselves based in Auckland as COVID-19 spread throughout the globe. Whilst being here they have been overwhelmed by the Manaakitanga and Aroha they have received from the people of Aotearoa.

“We are confident New Zealand will deal with this outbreak in the same way it has dealt with the virus better than any other country in the world to date.” says Teagan Klein, co-organiser of We ♥ Aotearoa.

Enjoy a FREE carnival of live music and performances, FREE Silent Disco, FREE Animal Cycle Roller Rink, games, interactive art installations, workshops, Freshmans Dance Crew, FREE Virtual Reality VR experience by Blake NZ, FREE Crafty Crew workshop, drift car display , sports stars and more… at this family friendly daytime event.

You can buy delicious food from the following food trucks at the event: Jo Bros Burgers, Double Dtuch Fries, Sweet As Bowl, Good Karma Coffee, Sabores, Lalele Organic Gelato, Crepes Creations, Thai Kitchen, The Rolling Pin, Wise Boys and Hangi Master.

We Love Aotearoa events are a thank you to the people of New Zealand for being so kind and welcoming, and also an acknowledgment of the hard work that ‘the team of 5 million’ have gone through to get us to where we are now.
