In Ōtepoti Dunedin we mark the return of the lone star Puaka and the star cluster Matariki, and celebrate the Māori New Year through a diverse, citywide programme of events that maintain the traditions of the wānaka season – a time of discussion, learning, remembering the dear departed, and making plans together – and whanaukataka, building community. Join in at shared feasts; fun library and museum programmes; mātauraka Māori workshops and lectures; toi Māori art, music and performance events, and much more!

This year's Dunedin Puaka Matariki Festival highlights include two huge events to mark the inaugural Matariki national public holiday on Friday 24 June – a dawn ceremony at Tūhura Otago Museum, and a three-evening light and water celebration of our environment at the Steamer Basin over the holiday weekend.

Nau mai, tauti mai – everyone is welcome!
