Next generation of stars to shine at Waitangi Day Family Celebrations

Published on : Saturday, January 30, 2016

Waitangi Day FamilyHayman Park will again host the Waitangi Day Family Celebrations in 2016 (Feb 6).

Top acts Savage, Three Houses Down, Sid Diamond, Dei Hamo and Ranea headline the free public event, along with support from Nesian Vibes, DJ Spell, Maaka Fiso and Pao Pao Pao.

The celebration is brought to us by Auckland Council in partnership with Toi o Manukau.
Originally launched in 1997 to celebrate the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi, it also gives local performers an opportunity to bring their talents to a wider audience. This year, the next generation of stars will take to the emerging artists stage.

The park will open at 9am with a powhiri at 9.30. From there, kapa haka, DJs, bands and rangatahi groups will entertain the crowds.

There will be plenty of family-friendly fun and good local food. There will also be items and information of historical and cultural significance on hand for those who want to learn more.

The event has been held at Sir Barry Curtis Park for the past five years, but returns to Hayman Park because the site offers improved parking and transport options. View a map of the area.

The celebration is a zero-waste, smoke-free and alcohol-free event supported by Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board.
