A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

Splore Festival

Splore Festival / Auckland / Stage

The nigh-perfect normalcy of life in New Zealand over the past year has been ascribed not only to its isolation (in the etymological sense), but to the persistence of manaakitanga, the Maori value of mutual care and respect. If you’re lucky enough to be there, you can experience this and a host of other Aotearoan virtues at Splore, a family-friendly arts festival that seems a cross between Woodstock and Burning Man, but with a more ravishing setting than either—Tāpapakanga Regional Park, on the shores of the Firth of Thames. —E.E.
