Auckland Live presents Summer in the Square 

 

From December to February we invite you to kick back on the Aotea Square grass terraces beside the Auckland Town Hall as Summer in the Square returns to the heart of Tāmaki Makaurau. Summer in the Square is Auckland Live’s inner-city, free festival of eclectic music, all-ages outdoor movies, and so much more!

The BOX in the Square Café and Bar at the edge of the grass terraces will be open for all to enjoy a drink and snack to accompany the world-class programming, while the outdoor lounge setting is complete with deck chairs and shade awnings to create the perfect atmosphere all summer long.
