Christmas 2021 in the heart of the city
In December the city centre lights up with the magic and wonder of Christmas with decorations in the streets and laneways, live music, Christmas shopping, waterside catch ups and much more.
The headline attraction is the Christmas Light Show at Te Komititanga, presented by Heart of the City, Auckland Council and Commercial Bay. The large scale projected light show will illuminate the entire Chief Post Office (CPO), spanning 55 metres wide and 32 metres high. Each evening it will take audiences on a delightful festive journey, from 8.45 pm -11 pm daily from 3 December until Christmas Eve.
Our "Festival of Christmas" campaign will be shared across outdoor, press, radio and digital media and encourages Aucklanders to head in to the city centre - for a spot of Christmas shopping, to enjoy the Christmas decorations, the iconic Smith & Caughey Christmas windows, to grab a meal or drink before checking out the Light Show.
