Festival Information

As part of this year’s Nelson Arts Festival Ngā Toi Huatau - The Season for Arts programme, we've created a series of community events that will bring colour and vibrancy to public spaces in Nelson, Richmond and Motueka, as well as our literary programme, Pukapuka Talks. In addition, The Human Voice and Avantdale Bowling Club are also proceeding.

We’re delighted to be able to deliver the events we’ve put together in collaboration with other organisations. This year this includes all the galleries listed on the Night Vision event page, Multicultural Nelson Tasman, Nelson Provincial Museum, Show Me Shorts, The Refinery Artspace, Nelson Libraries, Arts Council Nelson, Nelson Live Poets Society, DeVille, The Workshop Bar and Brewery, Red16, Kismet and Uniquely Nelson.

Please note we are going ahead contingent on the NZ Government announcing a return to alert Level 1 by Thursday, October 1. You can read the latest information about how we are responding to Covid-19 here.

We will share Festival events updates here on the website and also on the Festival Facebook page. Thank you.

Hope to see you there!
