Puketāpapa Manu Aute Kite Day

Traditionally manu aute and manu tukutuku (kites) were used to send messages to the heavens and between hapū (tribes). Manu Aute Kite Day honours and celebrates the universal tradition of kite flying across Tāmaki Makaurau, with events happening in Puketāpapa and Ōrākei on the same day. Watch the spectacle of kites of all shapes and sizes filling the skies, symbolically connecting heaven and earth. There are also plenty of opportunities for kite flyers of all ages to make and fly kites, sending their own personal messages and whakaaro (message) out into the world.

Join us for this uplifting day for the whole whānau, which has become a popular event in the Matariki Festival calendar.

Proudly supported by Puketāpapa and Ōrākei local boards.

Suitable for: All ages

When: Sat 26 Jun, 11am–4pm
