Auckland Council is calling for your help to name a new ten-day festival celebrating Tamaki Makaurau.
You have until December 16 to submit ideas for the event which will be wrapped around next year's Auckland International Cultural Festival.
"Our vision is for all Aucklanders to be proud of our multi-cultural city and feel a strong sense of belonging and understanding," said David Burt, Auckland Council events manager.
The expanded festival will run from March 19 to March 28, starting with nine days of activities in the region's arts and community centres.
It ends with the big finale- Auckland International Cultural Festival- on March 28 at Mt Roskill War Memorial Park.
People who make a submission could win one of two $50 food vouchers, which can be redeemed at the food stalls on March 28.
