Celebrating Auckland's rich diversity

Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board's annual flagship event is returning in its third year.

Diversity Festival is a free cultural event. It celebrates south Auckland's rich diversity through cultural experiences. The event will feature:

  • a variety of performances
  • cultural stalls and exhibitions

Our vision is to showcase the area’s magnificent and diverse range of cultures, through music, food and dance.

What we hope to get out of the festival

Through this festival, the local board aims to:

  • host an event celebrating the vibrant cultures and communities of Ōtara-Papatoetoe
  • showcase our diverse local talent, businesses and community groups to people from across Tāmaki Makaurau
  • enable our neighbourhoods to be well-connected and desirable places to live and visit.
