This Waitangi Day, head to Manukau Sports Bowl for this free whānau-friendly event to hear some great live tunes, experience the Māori cultural heritage of Tāmaki Makaurau and learn more about our national day.
After COVID and extreme weather events interrupted the event for the past three years, Auckland Mayor Wayne Brown is excited for Waitangi ki Manukau to return.
“It’ll be a great show. Waitangi ki Manukau is a celebration of unity, diversity, cultural exchange and great music. We are proud to support it alongside MUMA, and it stands as testament to the unity and mutual respect fostered by Te Tiriti o Waitangi.”
MUMA’s CEO Tania Rangiheuea invites the whole whānau along to experience a great summer music celebration to mark Waitangi Day.
“Nau mai ki te rā whakanui i te Tiriti o Waitangi ka tū ki Manukau! Everyone is welcome to join the celebration of our national day”, she said.
“Waitangi ki Manukau is an opportunity to reflect on the Treaty, as well as take time to enjoy a day of music, kai and learning with your loved ones.”
This year, Waitangi ki Manukau makes a welcome return to Manukau Sports Bowl to take advantage of the great outdoor space and to celebrate the role of Manukau in the signing of Te Tiriti o Waitangi 184 years ago.
Start the day with pōwhiri, enjoy spectacular live music, and take in the culture, te reo Māori, kōrero and kai in the heart of Manukau to learn more about the impact of the Treaty on our everyday lives.
