Nelson City Council is hosting Te Huihui-o-Matariki again in 2021. A variety of stalls will be available offering a diverse range of food and refreshments, as well as Māori arts and crafts.

This year’s event will feature entertainment from local kapa haka groups (and more to be confirmed) including a performance by singer and songwriter Sianne Dougherty (Ngāi Tahu, Ngāti Tūwharetoa). Sianne will be performing live with Grove Roots before the evening concludes with a fireworks display at 7pm.

Nelson City Council would like to invite vendors and/or community groups who are interested in having a stall at this year’s Matariki Festival to complete an expression of interest form.

The fireworks can be viewed from Guppy Park, North Road, Kinzett Terrace Carpark, Peace Grove, Akersten Street and the surrounding area. Please ensure that you take care on the roads and when parking your vehicle.
