Matariki ki te Ao Festival

E ngā mana, e ngā reo e rauhiri atu ana te reo ō whakamihi. 

Mā te Huruhuru presents Matariki ki te Ao 2022 endorsed and supported by Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board and Māngere - Otahuhu Local Board. In collaboration with our local council venues and communities, we are honoured to have you join us as part of our Kaupapa and look forward to celebrating Matariki together under the stars of our Matariki ki te Ao dome.

Our Matariki ki te Ao event will run for the duration of nine days aligning to one whetu of Te Iwa ō Matariki per day. We will have local entertainments, workshops, educational culture tours, and delicious kai at our festival markets.
