A ēnei rā, ka puta mai he toi waituhi tūramarama. Ko ngā tāngata noho i tēnei rohe, ngā kaitoi.

Northern Lights Festival is a multi day/night event co-aligning with Matariki.
During the 11 days of the festival there will be light art displays set up around the Tutukaka Coast by our local artists and creatives.
A map of light installations is available for you to use when you visit the Tutukaka Coast during the festival so that you can easily to view the art works. Over the festival, there will be a series of events for you and your whanau/family to attend.
The Tutukaka Coast is an idyllic location, central to Northland. As well as being home to many innovative artists and creatives, it has amazing scenery that lights up the eyes of visitors. Jo and the Northern Lights team knew that the Tutukaka Coast was the perfect place for a family-friendly Festival of Lights. A few crazy ideas, a bunch of enthusiastic people and the amazing Whangarei District Council supporting the idea led to the inception of Northern Lights Festival.
Northern Lights Festival is a community-run, not-for-profit event. Our hope is that this will be an accessible event for everyone and most of the events are free to attend, where possible. Our Light Displays are located in Tutukaka, Ngunguru & Matapouri. Head out to the Tutukaka Coast during the festival to see the Northern lights for yourself!
