The Haier Big Hoot Farewell Weekend and Auction

Throughout autumn 2018, the Haier Big Hoot captured Auckland’s imagination; with families, schools, businesses and community groups all coming together to help the project fly.

The Haier Big Hoot owls have now flown from their perches around Auckland, but there is one last chance to see them all. The owls* will stand together at the Aotea Centre for the Haier Big Hoot Farewell Weekend sponsored by Fidelity Life from May 25-27.

Find out more about this free public event here.

The Haier Big Hoot Farewell Weekend is also an opportunity for potential bidders to see the owl-works up close before the Haier Big Hoot Auction, sponsored by Professionals-Lovegrove Realty, on Tuesday 29 May.

Register for the auction and find out more here.

Thank you to all of our partners who helped us bring the Haier Big Hoot to Auckland, and to Regional Facilities Auckland, our Official Venue Partner for the Haier Big Hoot Farewell Weekend and Auction.

*The owlets have been returned to their schools and won’t be at the Haier Big Hoot Farewell Weekend.
