Auckland Live Christmas in Aotea Square

Auckland Live Christmas in Aotea Square

9 Dec - 21 Dec 2023

Aotea Square

We’re bringing some Christmas cheer to Aotea Square this December with a festive programme of free, whānau-friendly performances and experiences. 

From vintage tunes with The Madeleines, and brass moments with Maamaloa Brass Band, to festive carols with the GALS – Rainbow Choir and Christmas classics with National Youth Theatre, there’s so much to warm even the Grinch’s festive spirit! But wait, that’s not all. Sing your heart out at Christmas Karaoke, grab a picnic mat and enjoy Home Alone at our outdoor cinema, impress the whānau with your awesome ukulele skills, and get your competition face on for an epic game of Bounce Scape on the Auckland Live Digital Stage.

Plus, you can’t miss the annual family photo in front of the 10-metre-high Christmas Tree, have a game of giant chess or connect four, let your curiosity go wild with the imagination playground, unwind in a beanbag or deck chair, bop to the fresh beats from acclaimed DJ Gene Rivers, and enjoy some treats from the Container in the Square.

So, gather your friends and whānau and join us in Aotea Square for a merry old time!

Proudly supported by Auckland Council and the city centre targeted rate
