Exciting Auckland Events This March

As far as the weather goes, poor old Auckland hasn’t had the best start to the year! Countless events and concerts were cancelled, leaving many feeling a little short-changed over their summer break.

Luckily, there are some amazing March events in Auckland to make up for the rocky start to 2023. We’ve got concerts, comedy shows, exhibitions and more...

1. Catch some live music

We know the cancellation of Elton John’s concerts brought many music-lovers to tears, but maybe you can make up for it this March with a different live gig or two! To kick off a string of epic concerts for the month, the biggest selling boy band of all time, the Backstreet Boys, will delight 80s babies with an unmissable Auckland performance just down the road at Spark Arena. American country music sensation Morgan Wallen mixes things up next, launching his ‘One Night at a Time’ world tour right here in Auckland on Wednesday the 15th of March. The very next night, multi-platinum selling band OneRepublic performs, then less than a week later, Florence + The Machine comes to town with their global ‘Dance Fever’ tour. All gigs are at Spark Arena which is just a 20-minute walk or a short taxi ride away from our Parnell hotel. Some of the best March events in Auckland are these incredible live music gigs – so dust off your grooving shoes and get your tickets now!

2. Laugh the night away at a comedy gig

Prepare your abdominal muscles because there is a slew of world-famous comedians coming to Auckland in March. And all of them are performing just down the road at Spark Arena! Canadian comedian Russell Peters is the first to arrive, with tickets still available for his ‘Act your Age World Tour’ on Saturday 4th March. Box office icon Kevin Hart arrives next, sure to attract fans from all over the country to his ‘Reality Check’ tour on Wednesday 22nd March. Then Michael McIntyre brings his unmatched English wit to Auckland with his latest show, ‘Jetlagged and Jolly’. If stand-up comedy is one of your favourite genres on Netflix, it’d be criminal to miss seeing at least one of these comedians in the flesh! And if something more casual suits you better, there’s an open mic night scheduled for 7pm on the 14th of March at Heard Park on Parnell Road… You never know, you might be one of the first to catch New Zealand’s next big thing!

3. Discover the secrets of Stonehenge

We’ve covered March events in Auckland for music and comedy lovers… And now here’s one for the history and archaeology buffs! The Auckland War Memorial Museum is hosting a special exhibition on Stonehenge — arguably one of the most famous and mysterious ancient monuments in the world. This fascinating exhibition explores the why and how of how Stonehenge was constructed — and the significance of the monument within today’s society. Through a highly interactive experience, you’ll learn about the scientific discoveries surrounding the structure, see over 300 related ancient artefacts and learn about the people behind the construction. The Auckland War Memorial Museum is just a five-minute taxi from our Parnell Hotel or a 25-minute walk.


4. Partake in some sunrise yoga

In March, the mornings in Auckland are still quite warm. So what better way to start your day than with a little sunrise yoga on the rooftop of the Auckland Museum? On Sunday mornings from the 5th until the 26th of March, you can book yourself into an hour and 20 minutes of balance for the mind, body and soul. Run by the Museum’s wellness partners, Soul Centre, a sunrise yoga and meditation class is the ideal way to begin your day feeling relaxed yet rejuvenated. Classes are just $25, with all ages and abilities welcome. If you’re interested, you can even grab a discounted pass to the abovementioned Stonehenge exhibition to explore when your class is complete.


5. Indulge in food, wine and design

Are you a fan of Auckland restaurants like White + Wongs, Katusya, Smokin’ Cole and Nanam? If so, you’ll be delighted to hear that you can taste some incredible dishes by these fine establishments and more at the Indulge Festival this March. From Thursday the 2nd until Sunday the 5th, Wynyard Quarter and Jellicoe Harbour at the Viaduct will play host to live music, masterclasses and incredible gastronomic experiences. You can meet critically acclaimed chef Nic Watt of INCA, hear restauranteur Michael P Dearth’s insights on the connections between wine and food, or talk interiors with internationally celebrated designer Mal Corboy. For those who enjoy the finer things in life, this is an unmissable March event in Auckland!
