This annual Auckland Arts Festival is a highlight of the Auckland March calendar with more than 180,000 visitors coming to enjoy the arts and entertainment. For Aucklanders it is an event that makes them feel proud of their city through what it can offer to the rest of New Zealanders and overseas visitors.

What are we doing?


Hawkins is a bronze sponsor of the event providing a mix of financial and ‘in kind’ services.

The heart of the festival is in Auckland’s Aotea Square which we will help turn into a vibrant hub, a Festival Garden with the potential to draw an audience of 50,000 plus passersby.
