Waitangi Day

Celebrate Te Rā o Waitangi annually on 6 February at Waitangi Park with music, performances, stalls, and kai.

Nau mai, haere mai. Te Rā o Waitangi is a free, whānau-friendly event, to commemorate the signing of Te Tiriti o Waitangi (The Treaty of Waitangi) and Aotearoa New Zealand’s national day. It's about coming together to celebrate Aotearoa New Zealand and acknowledging our treaty obligations and partnerships.

A line-up of multi-cultural performances, Māori culture, activities, and kai was enjoyed by thousands at Te Rā o Waitangi 2024.
