Auckland Diwali Festival of Light

The Auckland Diwali Festival has grown to become New Zealand’s premier Indian cultural festival. It’s a free, family-friendly event held every year in October.

The Auckland Diwali Festival is delivered by Tātaki Auckland Unlimited on behalf of Auckland Council, with founding partner Asia New Zealand Foundation. Mayor Phil Goff says: “After two years of cancellations because of COVID-19, it is fantastic to be able to host Diwali once again.

“For over 20 years, Diwali has been one of the most popular festivals on our annual events calendar, attracting tens of thousands of people to the city centre to enjoy the tastes, sights and sounds of India,” he says.

“As we begin to return to more normal life following two years of pandemic disruption, the themes of Diwali – the triumph of light over darkness and good over evil, common to all our cultures – take on a special significance.

“I look forward to seeing Aucklanders from all backgrounds coming together to celebrate Auckland’s Indian communities and our city’s rich cultural diversity.”

The Auckland Diwali Festival will be delivered in line with Ministry of Health guidance for major events at the time. The festival is free to attend, alcohol-free, smoke-free, and family-friendly. For more information click Here
