EcoWest Festival

Saturday 17 March - Sunday 15 April 2018


EcoWest Festival 2018 has been and gone!

With more than 100 events, the Festival once again gave Aucklanders an opportunity to get involved, show our environment some love, learn something new, and discover amazing places and the people who look after them.
