What's On?

Aronui is a celebration of Rotorua and the people who live here, an opportunity for us to come together to enjoy a full schedule of entertainment which showcases the mauri (life essence) of what makes Rotorua unique.

We are blessed to have some amazing entertainers, artists and kaupapa Māori practitioners who want to share their talents with you as well as define why Rotorua is the heart of Te Arawa culture. 

Titiro ki ngā kaupapa e whai ake i te marama o Mahuru. Take a look at all the events for September.
