Celebrate the winter solstice in style with our fantastic line up of authors, guest speakers and Puke Ariki teams.


Puke Ariki's first ever literary festival celebrates libraries, liberty and literature. Puke Ariki is going all out with a tightly packed festival, super squished with fun. Brighten up on this fat solstice sandwich of stars: meet our local story tellers of fact and fiction through words and pictures.

Explore our epic board game collection, delve into digital tools and discover our collections with experienced guides. Indulge your curiosity, participate in poetry and learn new skills. Leave the cabin fever crazies behind and celebrate the winter solstice and Harry Potter's 21st year in style with us!
