Ko te putanga mai o Matariki te tohu mo te marama tuatahi o te tau Maori. Ko te Marama tuatahi ko Pipiri he whetu hoki i tae mua mai i a Matariki. He wa whakangahau!

The appearance of Pleiades is the sign for the first month of the Maori New Year. Pipiri (June) is the name of the first month and is also a star that appears slightly earlier than Pleiades. Traditionally a time of celebration!

Te Wairua o Matariki - Spirit Of Matariki is a community day for the whole Whanau celebrating Matariki and the Maori New Year. Spend the day enjoying the market atmosphere with an open stage, workshops, food and kite flying. Then be wowed as the sun goes down and Circus Kumarani put on their amazing fire show.
