The Hawke’s Bay Heritage Awards are the Hawke’s Bay communities’ opportunity to recognise and celebrate those whose talents and energies preserve our cultural heritage and inspire us to connect with our past, so that we can all feel more confident in our future. 

The people who called Te Matau-a-Māui / Hawke’s Bay home in the past have left their mark on the place we all call home today; through their sites of significance, the places they built, the artifacts they left behind and the stories they told. 

Their legacies gift to us our sense of place, our sense of belonging, our sense of identity. They tell the stories of our past and our progress as a region. 

Join us the 2024 Hawke’s Bay Heritage Awards from at the Napier War Memorial Centre, from 4.30pm, Friday, 8 November – click here for more details.

Nominations for the 2024 Heritage Awards to open 1 August until 31 August 2024.
