TE RAMAROA 9 - 13 July 2021

Te Ramaroa is a free outdoor festival celebrating art, technology, community and the wonder of light.

This year marks Te Ramaroa's 5th instalment. It's wonderful to see how far we have come since the first spark of an idea back in 2013! 

9 - 13 July 2021 | 5.30 - 9.30 pm every night


This year, we have extended our festival's footprint to span the wider city centre so we can all discover our city in a whole new light. From candlelight to laser, from tiny discoveries to large-scale projections on buildings: we promise a magical night out for everyone!
