Te Ahurei Toi o Tāmaki Makaurau/Auckland Arts Festival is a globally recognised celebration of art and culture - a place for ambitious ideas by storytellers, provocateurs and creators - taking place each March in New Zealand’s largest city.

The Festival reflects the contemporary, cosmopolitan city, its many communities and challenges artists and audiences to be bold and take risks through the work of artists of Aotearoa New Zealand and across the world. The Festival aims to unify, enlighten and inspire the people of Auckland/Tāmaki Makaurau and its many visitors.
