Originally presented only in Wellington City, Kia Mau Festival grew throughout the wider Wellington region. Featuring artists from throughout Te Ūpoko o te Ika a Maui, by 2019, Kia Mau Festival presented Māori, Pasifika and international Indigenous productions in Ōtaki, Paekākāriki, Porirua, Stokes Valley, Upper Hutt, Lower Hutt and Wellington City.
In June 2021, you will see that our festival has continued to grow. From April, our programme will be shared to te ao marama over the coming month.
Nau mai, haramai! Nau mai, hoki mai ki a Kia Mau!
