Nau mai, haere mai ki Porirua City. Join us to celebrate the Māori New Year

According to Māori astronomer Rangi Matāmua’s maramataka (lunar calendar) Matariki will rise in the east in late July and we’ll celebrate in Porirua from 12 to 19 July. We invite you to join us “Inside Under The Stars” at Te Rauparaha Arena where there’ll be fun for the whole whānau with movies, delicious kai, a family sing-along, wearable arts competitions and more.
