4th March – 11th March


The big news this week is obviously the Auckland Arts Festival kicking off on Wednesday. My picks for the festival are here. What a phenomenal line-up.


The Auckland Fringe obviously continues. My picks this week include Oh is for Opera, …him, and Home / The Hilarious Comedy About How I Nearly Killed Myself / A Play About How I Nearly Died But Didn’t Then Learned A Lot About Life Afterward (yes, that is one play). All of which will be reviewed this coming week. It’s the last week and if you haven’t been along to anything, you really should. There is a lot of things on that are free or koha as well, see: spit.it.out, Après Ski, Collision, and The Finger Family Tent Revival Tour.


On this weekend is the Pasifika Festival at Western Springs Park. If you’re planning on going, this year the Sunday will focus more on fellowship and spiritual values, with a church service happening at 9.00am. The Festival is divided up into villages representing the 10 different nations. Expect markets, cultural performances, music and fooooooooooood. If that is not enough Pacific for you, you’re in luck- it’s the last of the Pacific Showcases down at the Cloud on Saturday too.

My call is to head along on Saturday and then your Sunday will be free to go to EcoDay. If you want to live a more sustainable lifestyle but find yourself um-ing and ah-ing about how exactly your meant to go about that then this is the place for you. I for one could definitely do with a bit more know-how in this area. And, if you are an eco-champion already, you might find some neat products here to help you out-not to mention there will also be a market place with sustainably made products and yummy food and drink.

If you’re involved in anything cool please drop us a line with details and we’ll include it in our weekly round-up.
