Matariki Festival Whangārei

Matariki festival 2021

Ko Puanga te whetū i ārahi i ā Matariki ki te Tau Hou (Puanga is the star that guides Matariki to the New Year).

Puanga and Matariki is a time to encourage whanaungatanga, share stories and kai. It also marks the beginning of the Māori New Year which traditionally was time to plant trees, prepare the lands for planting crops and more importantly renew links with whanau and friends.

In the future, this page will list all of the 2021 Matariki Festival events - please check back at a later date to see what's happening.

Event registrations for the 2021 Matariki Festival closed on Friday 30 April 2021.
