A fantastic day for your entire family. Great entertainment, fantastic food and awesome rides etc for all the children.  2017 is our 16th year of running AFFIRM and it only gets better!!

As you can see by our photos taken at last years AFFIRM it was a great day!

AFFIRM is a family festival that the Aranui Community Trust delivers to provide health choices, education, employment, training opportunities and careers information in a fun filled family day with laughter, entertainment and fun activities for the Aranui and surrounding Communities of Christchurch to get together and enjoy.

AFFIRM is a day long festival that celebrates and showcases our people in Aranui, a proud community of hope and opportunities where people stand tall.
