Ports of Auckland’s SeePort Festival is a three-day celebration of Auckland City’s beautiful waterfront and rich maritime heritage. The family-friendly festival is one of New Zealand’s largest free events, returning in 2020 for its seventh year of seaside fun.

We invite you behind the red fence over Auckland Anniversary weekend to check out the port from land, sky or sea as Captain Cook and Marsden Wharves are transformed into a bustling summer festival. Carnival rides, boat sailings, helicopter rides, delicious food, virtual-reality, simulators, tours, music and entertainment on and off the water – little and big kids will be spoilt for choice!

  • Eat & Drink
  • You’ll find plenty of affordable, family-friendly fare from our vendors; fill up with a wholesome lunch or cool down with an ice cream (or two!). Our food vendors are using eco-friendly packaging where they can, doing their bit for the environment. Help keep our waterfront tidy by disposing of waste at our recycling stations. Free water stations are dotted around the wharf – BYO bottle and stay hydrated.

    From 5pm on the Sunday evening you may bring your own alcoholic beverages in small quantities to enjoy during the concert. SeePort Festival is a family-friendly event and we encourage responsible drinking. Please minimise the amount of glass brought on to the wharf. No spirits. Anyone found to be intoxicated will be asked to leave the event. Please be considerate of your fellow festival-goers.

  • Be sun-smart
  • The sun in January can be extremely harsh. We provide as much shade as possible (and water misters to keep you extra cool) but we do encourage you to wear sunscreen and a hat. Arrived unprepared? We have free sunscreen stations on the wharf for you to use – you can also pick up your own SeePort hat at the info desk on the wharf.

  • Little ones
  • SeePort Festival is a family-friendly event and we do our best to ensure that not only is there plenty to help keep your little ones entertained, fed and hydrated, but we also provide baby changing facilities located on the wharf should you need them.

  • Sunset Symphony & Fireworks
  • The Auckland Symphony Orchestra will perform from 7pm on the Sunday evening. White Chapel Jack will join the Symphony and bring the party to a close with the fireworks finale. Please bring a picnic and something to sit on if you please! Chairs must be low-lying as to not obstruct views for others. Please minimise the amount of glass brought on to the wharf. No dogs and no lasers allowed on the wharf.

  • Smokefree SeePort
  • SeePort Festival is a smokefree event. No smoking is allowed anywhere on site.

    This year we are aiming to have a waste free event with zero waste to landfill. To support this you’ll find waste free ambassadors around the festival to help you sort waste into the correct recycling and compostable bins.

  • Our Supporting Partners
  • We are so lucky to have the support of many of our maritime and local partners at SeePort including our major supporting partner, the Royal New Zealand Navy. Our partners help us create a fantastic festival year in and year out – many of which rely on hard working volunteers both at SeePort and out in our communities. Thank you!
