Matariki Celebrations

Event Date: 
Wednesday, 29 June 2016
Pirinoa Community Hall, Lake Ferry Road, Martinborough
Matariki is a community festival that revives the Māori tradition of marking the passage of time and celebrating the Māori harvest within a modern context.
The event will have activities to encourage whanau to participate and spend time together where there is minimal costs involved. Some of the activities available on the day are to be free and have an educational flavour about Matariki and its historical importance to Maori and Pacific cultures. But we encourage everyone to attend this evening.
Throughout the evening we will have an informative Star Talk, performances by international artist Warren Maxwell (Trinity Roots, Little Bushman), Kapahaka group Wairarapa Ki Uta-Wairarapa Ki Tai-Manukura, Waiata roopu, Pirinoa School, youth bands and much more!
Yes! There is free Hangi for all those who attend so don't be late. Other stalls will be available to purchase other goods for an evening learning about the stars and the winter solstice.
Free craft stalls available: ta moko stamps, Poi & Kite making, also enjoy some of the artwork on display.
Free bus: There will be return transport provided from towns: Greytown, Featherston & Martinborough - Book your seat to avoid disappointment by texting Tirau - 0273185451
