Matariki is the Maori New Year and represents a time of renewal, a time to begin preparations for new crops as the days begin to grow longer. It’s a time of sharing, casting away of old problems and moving ahead with a fresh outlook. It is often celebrated with a feast.

This is a great free family event to warm up a cold winter night. A koha (donation) is asked for the hangi.
