About the Festival

Celebrate with us!

Established in 1999 we are Tauranga's flagship arts festival. We deliver world-class programme direct from leading artists and performers at the peak of their practice. It's a live experience that you don't have to travel to Auckland for or be living in London - it happens right here in Tauranga.

We bring the community together and the City alive over 10 days, from the 19-29 October 2017.

The Festival activates the Tauranga CBD, presenting performances and exhibitions from the Carrus Crystal Palace, Baycourt, the Tauranga Art Gallery and throughout the streets. But it doesn't stop there.

We show from a number of venues in greater Tauranga, Mount Maunganui, Waihi Beach and Te Puke.

The 2015 Festival ran from 22 October - 1 November
