The Auckland Heritage Festival is back for 2019, celebrating the colourful characters and diverse cultures and communities who have shaped Tāmaki Makaurau through the years.
From exhibitions, walks, talks and tours, to a vintage market day and school holiday activities, there’s a huge range of events to suit all tastes and ages. The festival runs from the 5th-28th of October and two key events will be held right here in Newmarket to celebrate the rich history of the precinct.
