Te Rā o Waitangi

Nau mai, haere mai. We commemorate Aotearoa’s national day every year with free whānau friendly events.

A Kapa Haka group performs on stage in front of a crowd.

Te Rā o Waitangi is a free, whānau-friendly event in the heart of the city where we can honour the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi, acknowledge our history, and recognise the power of coming together.

Visit this page later in the year to find out what is happening in the city to commemorate and celebrate Waitangi Day 2024. It is sure to include an award-winning line-up of Māori performers, food, and culture!

These Waitangi day events are proudly presented or supported by the Wellington City Council Creative Capital team.
