SeePort Festival 2021
Celebrate Auckland's 181st birthday with military dog performances, drone races, navy boat tours and fireworks.
Auckland will celebrate its 181st birthday this anniversary weekend, and Ports of Auckland's SeePort Festival is just one of the events taking place to mark the occasion. The one-day family-friendly festival is a celebration of Auckland City's beautiful waterfront and rich maritime heritage.
Returning for its eighth year of seaside fun, SeePort will create a carnival atmosphere complete with food vendors, military dog performances, drone races, navy boat tours and a bomb disposal unit display.
The festival will conclude with the Auckland Symphony Orchestra performing on the wharf and a spectacular fireworks finale across Auckland harbour. Attendees are invited to find a spot behind the waterfront's iconic red fence to enjoy the evening of music and fireworks on Captain Cook Wharf. Alcohol can be brought on to the wharf from 5pm, though glass will be prohibited.
