Aotea Square is where it’s happening at the Festival, with free activities for all ages.

Enjoy free live music and family-friendly fun in our vibrant Festival Garden. 

Mark the opening of AAF2021 with us; create your own Aroha Art piece to contribute to our collaborative installation; enjoy workshops and performances on New Zealand Children’s Day, and our Community Day; listen to music from Tigilau Ness and friends; cheer on the dance groups and singers competing in #TĀMAKIBEATS; marvel at fire knife dances on International Women’s Day; enjoy our Digital Art programme on the big screen; savour the tastes from our multicultural food stalls; and boogie down to Betty-Anne Monga and Friends on closing night.

Lots to see, make, do and eat!

Look out for the full schedule in February 2021.
