Such a high calibre garden, what an absolute delight

- AAF 2015 attendee

In a nutshell:
An absolute delight / Soiree under the stars / Soak up the sounds

Way better than 19 of your own back deck BBQ parties… it’s 19 sun-drenched days and starry summer nights of food, fun, beats, eats, friends, family and arts and entertainment as tasty as any char-grill at the one-and-only New Zealand Herald Festival Garden in Aotea Square.

The Garden was the beating heart in the Heart of the City in 2015 and it’ll be pumping out the good stuff again this year. Come be part of the rhythm.

This year we’ve got

  •  A Spiegeltent and a Big Top tent with cabaret, comedy, circus, music and fun-times for families and the footloose and fancy free

  • Bites to eat

  • Mojo coffee on tap

  • Lunchtime lounging

  • Plenty of activities for busy kids on Family Day

  • The iHeartRadio Sound Lounge, a free music stage with exceptional sounds

  • A chilled out Garden Bar

  • Bean bags and deck chairs for kicking back and relaxing

  • An info and ticket booth teamed by super-friendly staff

  • A Garden Host for all your New Zealand Herald Festival Garden needs

  • Urban Art
