The New Zealand Festival of the Arts is Aotearoa’s leading celebration of cutting-edge culture. For three weeks, once every two years, the Festival transforms Wellington into a thriving, enlivening festival city, abuzz with the best arts and artists from around the world.

Come and experience art for everyone, everywhere. On the streets, along the waterfront, in theatres, tucked down laneways, on the beach and around the region. Take your pick of world-class theatre, dance, music and so much more to create a fabulous, mind-expanding arts experience just for you.
