Māngere East Cultural Festival
The Māngere East Cultural Festival is a community celebration that has been held annually in the Māngere East Village since 2008.
The event is held during the week of Race Relations Day (in March) and celebrates our community's rich diversity, with the sharing of cultures through performance, arts and crafts, foods, activities and education.
We are proud to live at the gateway to Aotearoa in our 'community of communities' and we celebrate the many different ethnic groups and communities that make Māngere East such a vibrant and special place.
In 2022 we are doing it again and we encourage community groups, performers, food vendors, artists, and anyone that wants to participate to get in touch and get involved. #LoveMangereEast

Each year the Māngere East Community Centre joins Ohomairangi Trust in hosting an evening of beautiful kai, performances, matariki activities and learning about Te Ao Māori. Open to all of our Māngere East community, we look forward to bringing the stars to our people every year.
Māngere East End of Year Festival
