Taranaki Tū Mai 2019

29/11/2019 @ 11:00 am - 01/12/2019 @ 3:00 pm

Taranaki  Mai is a biennial event where iwi of Taranaki come together to celebrate Taranakitanga, Whanaungatanga and Whakapapa through Hākinakina (sport), Kapa Haka (cultural performances) and Wānanga (learning forums).  This is the sixth Taranaki  Mai Festival to be held and in 2019 is being hosted Ngāti Maruwharanui at Tarata and Inglewood. 

The aim of Taranaki  Mai is to promote and celebrate Māori unity in Taranaki.  Taranaki  Mai offers something for everyone, from our mokopuna to our kaumātua.  It allows for whanaungatanga to be practised, valued and experienced inter-generationally, and with other whānauhapū and iwi.  


Friday 29 November to Sunday 1 December 2019.  The festival will be hosted by Ngāti Maru in Tarata and Inglewood. 


The official Pōwhiri will take place at Te Upoko o Te Whenua Marae in Tarata at 11.00am.
