18-28 OCT 2019
Welcome to the Festival
MASK PARADE & CARNIVALE - unfortunately due to the weather forecast we have had to make the call to postpone the Mask Parade until Sunday 20th Oct at 5pm, and cancel Carnivale.
The 2019 Festival - the 25th Nelson Arts Festival - sees shows coming all the way from such far-flung places as Germany, Scotland, the USA and even Nelson!
Explore the site to find everything you want from circus to choirs, from theatre to talks, from music to mask, and from dance to disco!
Our thanks to everybody who helped put this Festival together, our partners, our funders, our sponsors, our supporters, our crew, and of course you, our audience.
