Saturday 15th February

11:00am - 11:00pm


Auckland's largest environmental awareness festival.

How we choose to live directly impacts our environment.
After decades of watching the degradation of wildlife, ecosystems and water quality we are taking responsibility and making a difference.


Your ticket and donation will go directly to protecting one of the last stands of remnant coastal forest and New Zealand’s largest estuary marine reserve. Over the last 6 years Okura Forest Festival has raised over $95K. This year we aim to have the biggest and most incredible festival ever and raise over $35K!

Join us at the Okura Forest Festival and be part of the environmental revolution.
