Huihui mai | Come together for our city’s first event of its kind, Maanawatia a Matariki, to celebrate the rising of the star cluster Matariki that marks our Maaori New Year. The arrival of Matariki is a sign for people gather and celebrate new life, remember those who’ve passed and to plan for the future. Rally your whaanau and friends together to enjoy a night of taraka kai (food trucks), waiata (song), rekareka (fun) and haka. There’ll be a range of activities that includes lights and stars for the tamariki (children) to enjoy. Make sure you wrap up warm, bring something to sit on and join us at Hamilton Kirikiriroa Lake Domain Stage.
