Take a trip down memory lane and celebrate the best of the past today, when the Vintage Weekend takes over Aotea Square!
Admire classic cars, fossick through treasures at the market, set up a prize-winning picnic, watch the fashion parade and treat yourself to a vintage makeover at the Pamper Parlour. We’re open late and there are plenty of opportunities to learn some sweet dance moves before you groove the night away.
Auckland Live Summer in the Square runs from 1 December - 24 February with music, dancing, festive weekends, family activities and much more, all free in Aotea Square, Auckland.
