Matariki Festival Whangarei is a series of cultural events held throughout June and July in the Whangarei District, for our community and visitors to the district, to celebrate Matariki.
Previously called the Matariki Whanau Festival, the event has been moved from last year’s Town Basin location due to construction currently being undertaken in the area.
This free whanau festival will now take place at the Hihiaua Peninsula and will be held on 22 June 2019 from 10:00am – 3:00pm.
The 2019 event will feature a full programme of entertainment on the main stage, with guest performers as well as kapa haka, kai, Matariki market stalls and other fun activities located in and around the Hihiaua Cultural Centre.
We will be live, streaming the festivities on our Facebook page.
