Friday 15 March – Sunday 14 April 2024
EcoFest is an annual month-long festival celebrating the unique environment of Tāmaki Makaurau and how we care for it. Each year, the programme is packed with events, activities, installations and workshops for people of all ages and at any stage of their sustainability journey. From composting workshops to silent disco clean-ups, EcoFest’s aim is to make sustainability fun and accessible, inspiring people to make simple changes to reduce their impact on the environment. The festival programme will be released late February 2024.
For the second year running, EcoFest will be held Auckland-wide as a collaboration between EcoMatters Environment Trust, Kaipātiki Project on the North Shore, Beautification Trust in South and East Auckland and Waiheke Resources Trust.
REGISTER YOUR EVENT
Events can range from guided nature walks to film screenings, stream restoration days to family bike rides, hands-on workshops and more. You are welcome to include your regular ‘business-as-usual’ events and volunteer sessions, and we encourage you to find ways to make them just a little bit special and festive over EcoFest where possible.
View the 2024 programme for more inspiration on what kind of event you could host. We would love to see more events for men and more hosts from Auckland’s diverse ethnic communities, more hosts from Auckland’s diverse ethnic communities, and more events with a sustainable transport focus. Pick a date and time between Friday 15 March to Sunday 14 April that suits you, and secure your location. The 2024 festival dates include Easter weekend from Friday 29 March to Monday 1 April and the school holidays are from Saturday 13 April.
Please get in touch if you’re interested in hosting events in collaboration with other hosts, we may be able to put you in touch with potential collaborators.

We encourage you to use your preferred ticketing platform or automated booking system to accept
registrations to your event because it:
✅ Makes booking easier for the public
✅ Sends auto-reminders to those who book
✅ You know who is coming to your event
✅ Helps us track and report the number of participants across all of EcoFest
If you are hosting an event in North Auckland, Kaipātiki Project may be able to manage your bookings for you using our own online booking system. If you’d like to choose this option, please have your event details ready, and contact us before registering your planned events.
