Puanga – Night Lights over Foxton

Matariki Puanga 2022.

Come and celebrate Puanga’s arrival with dazzling lights and glorious kai – from all around the world. This bright star heralds the start of Matariki, and calls in the new year. 

Puanga means ‘abundant harvest’. Bring the whānau and relish tasty food-truck fare, live music, a brilliant lights and mists show, whirling de Molen blades and fire poi. 

A giant screen plays moody music videos, Deep Space photos, and Matariki art by tamariki.  

Inside Te Awahou Nieuwe Stroom, you can admire our Matariki exhibition in the Māpuna Kabinet Art Gallery, or talk with our kaitiaki about taonga, poi and art. 

Feast on great kai, while you enjoy the stunning ‘Puanga – Night Lights over Foxton Te Awahou Riverside Cultural Park’ show.
