This year, New Zealand will commemorate the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War on 15 August 2020.
This date marks the historic anniversary of the surrender by Japan, which represented the end of the War in Asia and the Pacific and the culmination of six long years of war across the rest of the world.
The public is invited to attend the national commemorative service, which will take place at 1pm on Saturday 15 August at Pukeahu National War Memorial Park. We recommend arriving by 12.45pm.
The service will also be live streamed. More information is available on the Ministry for Culture and Heritage website.
