Live Day | Celebrating Korean Culture

Howick Historical Village Pakuranga, Auckland from Howick Historical Village

Come along to Howick Historical Village on this special Live Day to celebrate the rich cultural traditions of Korea!

We are delighted to host this event in association with Yongrahn Park, Korean Positive Ageing Charitable Trust, and other Korean community groups from across Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland.

Along with all our usual Live Day attractions, there will be drumming and dance performances, colourful Hanbok (traditional Korean dress), art, demonstrations and more.

Watch a traditional tea ceremony in the parlour of the grand homestead Puhi Nui in the morning and a traditional wedding ceremony in the afternoon! Sample sweet and savoury treats and learn the arts of calligraphy and brush writing. Sit in the Victorian school room for a language lesson.

As always costumed Villagers will be onsite demonstrating crafts and skills from the 19th century. Try your hand at making butter, see the coal range and bread oven fired up, and check out the blacksmiths at work in the forge. The sweet shop will open for business, filled with old-fashioned lollies and treats.

Step back in time, explore the gardens, unwind in the Homestead café and make a day of it!

Admission: adult $18, student/senior $14, child $10, family $46, child under 5, members & annual pass holders - free entry. Unlimited door sales available.
