Festival Information

The wait is almost over...we're back from 21 - 31 October 2021 with a festival full of all the delicious art goodness!

While we can't quite share all we have planned for you yet, we're thrilled to announce that the Mask Carnivale will turn the streets into an explosion of colour, fun, music and creativity again on Friday 29 October 2021.
Keen to be part of this iconic event? Enrol here.

Our full programme will launch in early August - in the meantime, keep your eyes peeled on our Facebook and Instagram, sign up to our newsletter for all the good news, and check back here for updates.

We can't wait to connect with you!

About the elephant in the room: We don't want to jinx it, but in case that alert levels do change again here in Aotearoa - we will share Festival events updates here on the website and also on the Festival Facebook page. Thank you.
