Tāiko Festival - Return of the Westland Petrel Festival
The Return of the Westland Petrel Festival has been made to celebrate the Westland Petrel. A bird which returns from South America to Punakaiki once a year to breed.
We are very excited to announce the third Return of the Westland Petrel Festival!
The fourth event is going to be even better than before with great bands, local talent, tree planting, craft markets, food, clowns, drummers and more.
All money made will be going to projects to help the birds succeed.
Come for a great weekend, meet new friends, listen to great music and see what Punakaiki has to offer.
