UPDATE 10 Feb 2022On behalf of AUCKLAND ARTS FESTIVAL, we regret to announce that due to New Zealand moving to RED under the COVID-19 Protection Framework, Fun in the Festival Garden has been CANCELLED.

Auckland Arts Festival’s current list of show updates can be found HERE and AAF’s COVID-19 Ticketing Terms & Conditions HERE


Bring your family and friends to Aotea Square for some fun in the Festival Garden. 

Spend time with our giant visitors who have landed on our Fantastic Planet, light up our large drums with your own rhythm or explore the multi-cultural Tape Art Labyrinth and try and find your way from start to finish. 

Gather your close friends and workmates for an after-work get together, take a Latin dance lesson or kick up your heels to line dancing on Friday evening. Music, poetry, mau rākau and poi workshops provide some fun as we launch the first weekend of the festival with a bang. 

Full lineup coming in late January.
