    Ticket information

    There are 3 sessions each day; please ensure you purchase the correct day and session for the performances you wish to see. If you want to attend more than one session in a day, you must purchase tickets for each session.

    At the venue, you will exchange your ticket for a wristband. Each session will have a different coloured wristband. Following each session, the venue will be cleared.

    Tickets for under 5s are free if they are sitting on the knee of their caregivers

    Please note the finals, and some other sessions are sold out. For any ticket releases, visit the official facebook page.

    *Fake pages with fake links are, unfortunately, really common these days. A reminder that the organisers will only ever post from the official page, and will never add you as a friend as this is a ‘like’ page only. 

    Site Map

    Please note these 3 key points:

    1. No onsite parking is available - please prepare to park and walk, or use the drop zone or consider taking the bus. We have golf carts from the drop zone to support kaumātua.
    2. There are no cash out facilities onsite, come check out our awesome stalls and bring cash with you.
    3. You are welcome to bring your drink bottle to use out refillable water stations.

    Free online viewing

    For whānau who cannot attend in person, the event is broadcast free to air on  – you do not need put in credit card details.

    The four days of whakataetae - three days of pool competition and a day of finals - will be broadcast live from the Trafalgar Centre in Whakatū (Nelson) from 9.00 AM Tuesday 25 June on MĀORI+ and Te Reo channel.
