Whanau Festival

Event Details

Drop into Silo Park on Sat 19 and Sun 20 March at Auckland Arts Festival for a FREE whānau fiesta full of performances and activities on the waterfront.

Flow into a yoga session, spend time with the Fantastic Planet installations, light up the large drums with your own rhythm, hang out and listen to music, and watch in awe at wonderful dance and music performances, reflective of our beautiful city. Write your statement of truth as part of our “Thoughts from the Water’s Edge” project, enjoy children’s entertainment.

Sit back and relax on Saturday as a superb collection of Tāmaki Makaurau drum groups collaborate to send everyone into the twilight hours with a boom, concluding with a final spark from Polynesian fire knife dances. Performances from different cultural groups on Sunday bring the fiesta weekend to a close with more dance, music, and exciting kapa haka.

Full line up coming in late January, 2022.
