Matariki Events 2023

Matariki, also known as "the rising of the star constellation", is a significant time in the Māori calendar, as it marks the start of the Māori New Year.

The New Year celebrations provide a unique opportunity for communities to connect, reflect on the past, and set intentions for the year ahead. This time of year is marked by feasting, storytelling, song, dance, and other cultural activities that showcase the rich heritage of the Māori people. It's a time to honor the land, sea, and sky that sustain us all and to celebrate the connections between all living things.

If you're looking to join in the festivities, there are plenty of Matariki events to choose from. From traditional Māori ceremonies and cultural performances to contemporary art exhibitions and workshops, there's something for everyone.
