A programme of free Diwali-themed activities ahead of the weekend’s Auckland Diwali Festival.

In Ellen Melville Centre, have a go at DIY henna or mehndi, learn how to wrap or drape a sari, create rangoli patterns to take home and play interactive digital Hindi language games. There will also be snacks – sweet mithai treats and savoury namkeen nibbles – to sample.

Outside in Freyberg Place, see artists draw colourful patterns in chalk on the pavement in a rangoli drawing competition from 9am-1pm (online pre-registration required to take part).

This programme is organised by Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED), which delivers the Auckland Diwali Festival on behalf of Auckland Council, in conjunction with founding partner Asia New Zealand Foundation, and Ellen Melville Centre.
