Celebrate the people and cultures from all over the world that have made Tāmaki Makaurau the diverse city it is today at the 2018 Auckland Heritage Festival.

Explore the sacred spaces of the beautiful Bharatiya Mandir Hindu temple, marvel at Gottfried Lindauer’s majestic Māori portraits, tour Eden Park with historians to uncover the stories and characters behind our national stadium or join a walk to celebrate the Pasifika peoples and stories of Karangahape Road.

From exhibitions, walks, talks and tours, to a vintage market day and have-a-go gold panning, there’s a huge range of events to suit all tastes and ages.

This year’s festival theme is Ngā iwi o Tāmaki Makaurau – Celebrating the heritage of our people, bringing together the heritage stories of the many different cultures and communities that make up Auckland.

Auckland Heritage Festival is brought to you by Auckland Council.
