Te Atatu Peninsula’s Popular Spring Festival Returns

Te Atatu Peninsula Community Centre will once again be a buzzing hive of activity in November, when the popular, annual Spring Festival returns for the third year.

The Te Atatu Spring Festival is a locally-organised event that attracts hundreds of people to the vibrant West Auckland community.

Running this year from 18-26 November, the Festival comprises more than 50 individually organised pop-up stalls and events, from dance classes to paper plane making, cooking classes to a family gala day. The Te Atatu Spring Festival is a celebration of the community’s collective creativity and local talents. Some of the previous Festivals’ events have become permanent fixtures in the Te Atatu Peninsula community calendar.

“Locals love coming down to the Community Centre to connect and collaborate. Like the superb Friday Night Market in Summer, the biennial Harbourview Sculpture Trail and the hugely popular Santa Parade, the Spring Festival produces an enormous amount of community pride each year and reinforces the Peninsula residents’ passion and drive to build a strong community,” says Festival Coordinator Amanda Lowe.

“Right now, we’re looking for anyone who wants to host an event. It doesn’t matter who you are; if you have a passion, business or talent, this is a fantastic opportunity to showcase your skills and products,” Lowe says.

Events in the pipeline include the Great Te Atatu Bake-off, a kids’ disco, an old timers’ morning tea, cultural crafts and a kid’s market in conjunction with the Te Atatu Night Market.

The Festival acknowledges the generous support of the Henderson-Massey Board, who provide funding and gives the Festival free use of council-run space.
