Matariki – 2022
25 June @ 2:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Matariki is the Maori New Year and represents a time of renewal, a time to begin preparations for new crops as the days begin to grow longer. It’s a time of sharing, casting away of old problems and moving ahead with a fresh outlook. It is often celebrated with a feast.
This is a great family event with Kapa haka & family fun activities, then to warm up a cold winters night a fireworks display over Lake Wānaka.
