Matariki ki Pōneke starts tonight!

Simone Borgstede from Wellington City Council

It's nearly here! ✨🔥

Our Matariki ki Pōneke celebrations start this Thursday 23 June with Ahi Kā, an immersive journey through fire, light and stories along the Wellington Waterfront.

Each night from Thursday 23 - Sunday 26 June between 6pm – 9pm enjoy large scale projections, soundscapes, performances, installations and of course – Ahi (Fire). Check out the sneak peek of the Storybox projection on Te Papa!

Then on Friday 24 June at 7.15pm, celebrate the Māori New Year with a dazzling fireworks display. There will be food trucks along the waterfront on Friday only and reusable cups and crockery for you to borrow to keep waste at a minimum.

And to top it all off, there will be free music performances and art activities on Thursday 23 and Friday 24 June at Te Wharewaka o Poneke, featuring local artists like Amba Holly, Louis Baker, DJ Gooda, IA and much more!
