EcoWest Festival aims to highlight, celebrate, inspire and inform west Aucklanders’ ongoing commitment to caring for our precious environment.
The festival runs from 11 March to 9 April and involves more than 100 events throughout west Auckland.
Events will include guided nature walks, film screenings, stream restoration days, DIY workshops, free park yoga and more.
The whole family can get involved with activities like family bike rides and guided walks learning about butterflies, and there will also be events to get people out and discovering the natural wonders in their backyard. Most of the events will be free or low cost.
Some of the new events this year include the Down and Dirty Rooftop Party at Lopdell House, Titirangi, The Green Effect Comedy Show featuring Te Radar, Penny Ashton, Pax Assadi and Brendon Green, Free Park Yoga at Olympic Park and Conscious Layers Action Nights where you can learn the basics of repairing clothes.
The festival is hosted by EcoMatters Environment Trust, with generous support from The Trusts Community Foundation, Henderson-Massey Local Board, Waitakere Ranges Local Board and Whau Local Board.
