Exciting new season of Music and Movies in Parks and affordable activities announced


Get ready for a summer of fun as Auckland Council announces its lineup of blockbuster events, and profiles some of the best spots across Tāmaki Makaurau to make this the best summer ever!

Watch the year’s biggest film Barbie on your beanbag at Movies in the Parks, boogie at the beach with Che Fu and King Kapisi as HedLok – dancing shoes not required – or make the most of the longer days on any of our stunning tracks, bush, maunga and walkways.

Auckland Council has a variety of places, parks, pools, walks, community facility splashpads and playgrounds to keep you entertained – whatever the weather.

Music in Parks

Summer favourite Music in Parks brings diverse and vibrant local musical talent to Auckland’s coastlines.

With line-ups including Hedlok made up of Kiwi icons Che Fu and King Kapisi, Sola Rosa Sound System and Annie Crummer at locations from Māngere to Snells Beach, this unique fusion of music and nature will transform our beaches and green spaces into not-to-be-missed concert venues.

This year, several shows will be held beachfront at some of the most beautiful seaside parks in Tāmaki Makaurau so you can vibe to the music and the rhythm of the waves all summer long!

Don’t miss the perennial favourite Opera in the Park at two stunning locations – St Heliers and Ambury Regional Park; and be there as Music in Parks heads to a brand-new location – the bustling Ōtara Markets in partnership with Ōtara Music and Arts Centre (OMAC).

Experience the magic of outdoor cinema as Movies in Parks returns for another blockbuster season.

This year, we have eight epic free film screenings across Tāmaki Makaurau to make the most of the warm summer evenings.

Hit up the group chat and get the whole gang along for a special screening of 2023’s biggest movie – Barbie – be sure to dress up in pink!

Or bring the whole whānau along for a movie experience to entertain adults and kids alike, the 2023 smash hit – The Super Mario Bros. Movie. And don’t miss family favourites EncantoCoco and Paddington 2.
