Celebrating Chinese Culture

Celebrating Chinese Culture

September offers an opportunity to learn, enjoy and participate in Chinese culture.

Celebrating Chinese Culture is an extensive programme of events and activities organised by six local Chinese groups and organisations. The groups are collaborating to support New Zealand Chinese Language Week and to celebrate the Chinese Moon Festival – one of the most important traditional festivals in Chinese culture.


Activities run from 10 September to 2 October.

All events except for the Moon Festival Celebration are free.

Tickets for the Moon Festival Celebration can be purchased from the Regent Theatre or Ticket Direct. Tickets are $6 or $10.
