Taste of Cultures, Spark Arena
Limited tickets for an exclusive experience of the first Auckland edition of Taste of Cultures at Spark Arena. We can't wait to welcome you to a luxury evening to experience a culinary and cultural journey.
Guests will start the evening with canapes and drinks in the Spark Lounge, and will then be taken on a worldly journey through food, music, dance and speakers in the atrium - a unique venue space within Spark Arena.
Tickets include a three-course bespoke meal, presentations and performances. Enjoy music and dancing from some of the most skilled artists and newest kiwis.
Refugees are ordinary people facing extraordinary circumstances. They have experienced war, persecution, discrimination, racism and oppression. They've been forced to flee from their homeland because of nothing more than their ethnicity, religion or beliefs. Refugees have been denied basic human rights in their country of origin and are unable to safely return home.
The chefs at Spark Arena have developed bespoke courses which transform traditional homecooked recipes from different cultures, into a high quality three-course menu. The chefs have consulted with our Taste of Cultures recipe book cooks to ensure that they are keeping in line with tradition, we are particularly excited about the Ethiopian Doro Wot and Cambodian Cassava Cake!
Tickets are $150 per person, or $1,200 for a table of ten.

Taste of Cultures is an opportunity to show the incredible contribution that our refugee-background whanau are making to our communities, and to raise vital funds for our programmes to help people affected by conflict or disaster.
