Matariki Ramaroa

Matariki Ramaroa

JUNE 24 – JULY 17 2022

MATARIKI RAMAROA is a month-long multi-disciplinary arts festival across the Kāpiti Region June 24 – July 17, 2022. 

Bookended by two public light sculpture events at the beginning and end of July, Lighting the Beacons includes music, arts and theatre as well as multiple community events for Kāpiti whānau to enjoy.

Matariki is the Māori tradition that marks the rising of the star cluster also known as the Pleiades. Matariki signals the beginning of the Māori new year and is a time for commemorating the passing of loved ways as well as making plans for the coming year. It is also a time for celebration!

Join us for Matariki Ramaroa in Kāpiti this Matariki!
