Auckland Diwali Festival of Lights

Aotea Square

India’s best loved festival, Diwali symbolises the triumph of light over darkness, good over evil and the renewal of life. To celebrate, families light small oil lamps (diyas) around the home and set off fireworks. Now you too can enjoy a taste of authentic Indian culture at Auckland's 14th Diwali Festival of Lights.

Highlights of the festival will include delicious food stalls showcasing authentic cuisine, traditional and contemporary dance and music, the hotly contested Bollywood dance competition, and a grand finale fireworks display.

The Auckland Diwali Festival is organised by Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED) in partnership with Asia New Zealand Foundation.
