Join us for a free, family friendly concert at Barry Curtis Park on Waitangi Day, produced by Auckland Council in partnership with Toi o Manukau, will mark the 175th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi.

The day offers an opportunity for community to commemorate the Treaty of Waitangi through the sharing of music, arts and culture. We invite you to join us for a day of celebration, education, culture and entertainment”, says Toi o Manukau Co-Chair Nigel Borell. Wellington based reggae group Tomorrow People headlines a strong lineup that includes Annie Crummer, Moana & the Tribe and Tama Waipara. Comedian Mike King will host the event.

The day-long free event offers Aucklanders and their families, a destination to gather and have fun through sharing music, crafts, entertainment and food. The concert, the region’s largest Waitangi Day event, begins at 10am with a ceremonial welcome and kapa haka performance by Manurewa Marae very own Te Tai Tonga. Moana and the Tribe then kick-off the live stage show at 11am. Live stage kicks off with Soul7 at 11am.

New to the event this year is Auckland Museum’s popular summer children’s programme, Tāmaki Tales. Youngsters can listen to stories, design a street flag, weave a tututuku, handle Taonga Puoro and watch master carvers work on a variety of commissioned pieces. On show also, 9 replicas of the original signing sheets of the Treaty of Waitangi.

The day is focused on providing a safe, zero waste, alcohol and smoke-free experience, encouraging Auckland’s festival goers to make the most of the fantastic free local music acts in a relaxed whānau friendly setting.

*Please note: For family reasons Whenua Patuwai is no longer performing on Waitangi Day at Barry Curtis Park as previously advertised.
