MATARIKI Celebration with Kahu Youth

21 June 2017

Come and join us for the Matariki Celebration with Kahu Youth and friends on Saturday 24th June (wet weather contingency Sunday 25th June) from 2.30pm – 6pm.

Matariki is the Maori New Year, a time to come together, cast away old problems and move ahead with a fresh outlook on life. Come and join us for this family friendly, FREE community event on the lakefront by the Dinosaur Park.

Join us for workshops and performances during the daylight hours and, as the night draws in, see a mindblowing fire show (starring young people from Kahu Youth), eat an amazing community hangi (by koha/donation), get warm by our two epic bonfires and see the wonder of the massive fireworks display!

We are still looking for business sponsors for this longstanding community event. Please get in touch on (03) 443 5880/kahu.youth@xtra.co.nz to discuss – there are some attractive rewards!

Thanks to our generous sponsors so far – our awesome volunteers, Placemakers, Three Parks, Wools of Wanaka, Smokefree NZ, Central Lakes Trust, The QLDC, Radio Wanaka, Federal Diner, Peak Functions Centre, The Aspiring Pharmacy, The Aspiring Dentist, Wanaka Alcohol Group (WAG), Base Backpackers and Mint Bar, The Community Arts and Circus Trust New Zealand and Wanaka Kids Club!
