Te Rā o te Raukura is back bigger and better for 2015 celebrating our 21st Birthday
Arohanui ki te Tangata (Goodwill to all Men) is theme for this year

Te Rā o te Raukura is a two day festival hosting the Wellington Māori Cultural Society Marae Haka on Saturday 31st January.

Sunday is the festival we know and love with ADIJAH, Annie Crummer and Bella Kalolo as the premier music acts.

Every year 'Te Rā' attracts up to 20,000 people to Te Whiti Park, Waiwhetu in Lower Hutt. It's a family orientated festival with a focus on Health, Art, and Education with kid's amusement rides, and over 100 stalls with a massive array of fine foods and crafts. This event is a smoke and alcohol free festival.

The name of this event Te Rā o te Raukura is significant to the people at Waiwhetu and the tangata whenua in the Wellington Region. The 'Raukura' was used as a symbol of peace, love and harmony by the prophet Te Whiti O Rongomai at Parihaka. He and fellow prophet Tohu Kakahi led their people to passive resistance and patient obedience as an armed constabulary invaded the peaceful village of Parihaka on November the 5th in 1881. Te Rā o te Raukura commemorates this day and celebrates unity in Lower Hutt City and the wider Wellington Region.

All proceeds from stall fees will go to Te Omanga Hospice. Car parking fees on Saturday will go to Waiwhetu Marae - Waka Crew and Sunday will go to the Māori Women's Refuge.
