Auckland Diwali Festival

A free, family-friendly festival that offers the flavours, sights and sounds of Indian culture in the heart of Auckland.

This festival celebrates traditional and contemporary Indian culture in its many forms as well as being New Zealand’s largest vegetarian festival, with a vast range of Indian foods and sweets.

Enjoy live music and dance, including the hotly contested Radio Tarana Bollywood dance competition, the Indian Weekender Mr & Ms Diwali talent competition and The Great NZ Dance Masala finalists on the Aotea Square stage; check out classical music, small group performances and DJs on the new Queen St stage; and experience street performance, food and retail stalls, and activities for kids.

There are giveaways and competitions and the two-day festival is capped off with a fireworks display on Sunday night.
