EcoFest is an annual month-long festival celebrating our unique environment and sustainable living. Each year, the programme features interactive workshops, experiences and activities that celebrate and restore our natural environment, and teach ways to live more sustainably in our neighbourhoods.

EcoFest is growing

To build on a longstanding collaboration between EcoMatters and Kaipātiki Project, #ecofest2023 is going regional! EcoMatters, Kaipātiki Project, Beautification Trust and Waiheke Resources Trust have teamed up to collectively showcase all that Tāmaki Makaurau has to offer in the sustainability space. The festival has a new look but the same passion for local action and impact!

Registrations for events taking place in West Auckland have now closed. Check out more than 300 events taking place across Tāmaki Makaurau here.

West Auckland programme

Printed West Auckland event programmes will be available at EcoMatters and libraries, community centres, cafes and retail outlets across the west from early March.
