Waitangi Day

Together with the Te Manawhenua Forum mo Matamata-Piako we hosted a whaanau friendly community event to celebrate Waitangi Day in our district.

This year's event was co-hosted with Ngaati Hauaa and Ngaati Hinerangi and took place at Matamata Domain on Tuesday 6 February from 10am to 2pm.

The dayfocused on what the Treaty means to us as a district and to our people, as well as a haangi and entertainment, as well as offering free access to Swim Zone Matamata.

Whaanau/community/sports groups were invited to come along and share with us what Waitangi Day means to them and to use this whaanau day as a fundraising event by organising activities or food/beverage sales.

If you're interested in being part of a similar event in 2019, and would like to have a stand/stall on the day, or would like to support the day in any other way, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
