16-26 OCT 2020


We are now in planning mode for the 2020 Festival, which is set to welcome spring to Nelson from the 16th to 26th of October.

The 2019 Nelson Arts Festival - our 25th fabulous festival - saw shows come all the way from such far-flung places as Germany, Scotland, the USA and of course Nelson! We very much hope you all enjoyed the many and varied works as much as we enjoyed presenting them. A huge THANK YOU to everybody who helped put the Festival together, our partners, our funders, our sponsors, our supporters, our crew, our volunteers, and of course you, our audience.

In the meantime, PODCASTS of the 2019 Festival's Page & Blackmore Pukapuka Talks sessions are all available to listen to. CLICK HERE FOR THE PODCASTS
