Waitangi Day Garden Reception Ballot 2020

The 2020 Waitangi Day Garden Reception is being held at Government House in Wellington on Thursday 6 February.

We want as many New Zealanders as possible to have the opportunity to join Their Excellencies in marking this special day, so once again we're making a number of invitations available via a public ballot.

Each successful entrant will receive an invite for themselves and a friend to attend next year's reception, which includes entertainment, food and beverages as well as Dame Patsy's Waitangi Day address.

We've streamlined the ballot form so this year you should find entering easier.
