Waitangi Day 2020

5th Feb 20

The 6th of February every year is Waitangi Day.  This day is the most important marker in New Zealand’s history and commemorates the first signing of Te Ririti o Waitangi, The Treaty of Waitangi.

Waitangi Day is a day to reflect on the controversy that surrounds the Treaty of Waitangi – Throughout history and within today’s society, how this has affected all New Zealanders and how it has shaped the country in which we live today.

A great place to learn about the Treaty of Waitangi is of course, the place where the document was signed back in 1840 – Waitangi in the Bay of Islands, which is about five minutes out of Paihia and around 60 km’s north of Whangarei.  Being the location of the first signing of the Treaty of Waitangi, the quiet Northland town becomes the commemoration mecca on the 6th of February every year.  Thousands of people gather to join in the commemorations, the crowds can be as varied as the Prime Minister, Members of Parliament and celebrities through to general members of the public and children.

If you can’t make it to Waitangi, there are plenty of other events closer to home that you can go to.  This year, the Waikato Museum will be holding celebrations which will kick off at 10am and finish up at 4pm.  The activities on offer range from Kapa Haka and performing arts to crafts and traditional Maori games.  Visit the Waikato Museum for more information and a full programme of the activities.
