Let's raise our spirits during mid-winter and light Oxford up to celebrate Matariki 2023! This year, we have some fantastic prizes for the best displays, and the rewards are valued at over $3000! We encourage all our fellow locals to get into the spirit of this event and light up your house, business, front window, garden, tree, front fence or even your letterbox - ANYTHING that can be seen from the road!
The Festival runs from 1-16 July 2023, with the prize giving at 5 pm on Saturday, 15 July, at The West Oxford Hotel.
So, let's unite and get Oxford lit up for those two weeks to celebrate Matariki 2023 in style!
OPAC organises this event to encourage community spirit during mid-winter - when many people may feel isolated, lonely or depressed.
There are prizes for large residential displays, small residential displays, businesses and some surprise prizes. Most prizes are in gift vouchers or credits, which can be spent at ANY Oxford-based business! And, if you can't decide which one to spend all that money on, you can split the prize money between up to three businesses.
1st Place Residential Larger Display $600 (Spend at ANY Oxford-based business)
2nd Place Residential Larger Display $500 (Spend at ANY Oxford-based business)
3rd Place Residential Larger Display $400 (Spend at ANY Oxford-based business)
1st Place Residential Smaller Display $300 (Spend at ANY Oxford-based business)
2nd Place Residential Smaller Display $250 (Mitre 10 Rangiora gift voucher)
3rd Place Residential Smaller Display $200 (Spend at ANY Oxford-based business)
Plus, two surprise prizes of $100 each!
Light up your entire house or just something seen from the street, like a tree, front window, fence, shed, garage, letterbox, or power pole. The only rule is that you must be lit up every night from 6 - 10 pm from 1-16 July 2023.
