We are monitoring advice from the Ministry of Health and will provide further updates and advice around rescheduling of Auckland Live’s Summer in the Square in due course.


Despite the challenges we face, there’s nothing better than being queer. After marching the streets demanding more for LGBTQIA+ communities, we’ll reconnect with queer joy at the Auckland Pride Party in Aotea Square.

Featuring two stages packed with talented rainbow artists, there’s something safe and accessible for every energy level - whether you want to grab a summer cocktail from one of our licensed bars and party all night, or make memories with your friends in a quieter space. Celebrate queer joy your way at the Auckland Pride Party this summer.

This event is part of the 2022 Auckland Pride Festival. See the full programme at
