Auckland Heritage Festival

The Auckland Heritage Festival for 2016 is here!

With more than 200 local events across Auckland, many of which a free or low-cost, this year’s festival is a great opportunity for Aucklanders to enjoy all that our dynamic city has to offer.

The theme for this year, Now and then: the changing face of Auckland, celebrates the past and present and recognises its’ importance in shaping our future.

So jump on your bike for a tour of historic parks, enjoy high tea with scones, sail away on a legendary vessel, discover Auckland’s street art, find out about the baches on Rangitoto Island and more.

From school holiday fun, historic exhibitions and walks and book launches, there’s something for everyone.

Take another look at the Auckland you normally go past.

Auckland Heritage Festival is on from 24 September to 9 October. For a full programme of events, visit the website
