About the Festival

Celebrate with us!

Established in 1999, we are Tauranga's flagship arts festival. We deliver a 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 will be bringing the community together and the City alive over 10 days, from the 24th of October to the 3rd of November 2019.

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 regions.

The 2017 Festival ran from 19 - 29 October
