Matariki - Celebrate Queen Street

Sunday 22nd July 2018

Due to bad weather on Saturday the Matariki event is postponed to Sunday 22 July, same time and location. 4 - 7pm, Sundial Square in Richmond.

Queen Street is done so let's celebrate!

Join in the fun with a range of activities including, flax weaving, kite making, neon painting, storytelling and more.

The stage will come alive with a Aotearoa fashion show, fire poi act, live music, storytelling and traditional Maori performances.

We hope you are hungry as there is a traditional hangi, fried bread and other delicious food.

Matariki heralds the Maori New Year, when the seven stars of Matariki (Pleiades) rise in the sky. Traditionally it is a time of remembrance and a celebration of the harvest and new life – a time for singing, dancing and feasting.

New Year, New Beginning, Let's Celebrate Q Street!
