TUKU 24 - Te Hau Kōmaru National Waka Hourua Festival

Saturday 6th-Sunday 14th April 2024

The third festival since 2021, Te Hau Kōmaru National Waka Hourua Festival is a celebration, bringing together waka from across Aotearoa (New Zealand).
It is a gathering of heritage, craftsmanship, waka workshops, interactive activities, and a platform for waka experts to share mātauranga waka.

We hope that through the festival we raise awareness and educate people about the cultural significance and history of waka hourua, fostering a deeper understanding of waka hourua traditions for generations to come.
