    Te Huihui-o-Matariki 2024

    Nelson City Council is hosting Te Huihui-o-Matariki, the Matariki Festival 2024, in collaboration with Ngā Iwi e Waru o Te Tauihu o Te Waka-a-Māui on 28 June.

    Entertainment will include light art displays, a performance by special guest and New Zealand multi-award-winning Māori singer-songwriter Maisey Rika (Ngāti Awa, Te Arawa, Te Whānau a Apanui, Tūhoe), and more.

    The event will commence from 5pm with a Mākete Pō (night market) offering a diverse range of kai as well as Māori arts and crafts for sale.

    Traffic will be busy in the city, so please consider carpooling, taking the bus, cycling or walking to the event.

    There will also be no access to cash withdrawals onsite and limited access for eftpos transactions, so please bring cash.

    Koha received will be donated to a local charity (to be confirmed).
