Aotearoa New Zealand Festival of the Arts

Wellington’s festival

The Aotearoa New Zealand Festival of the Arts is New Zealand’s premier cultural event. Since 1986, Wellington transforms into a great festival city every two years. Over 24 days, Wellington hosts arts experiences in easily accessible theatres, concert halls, museums, galleries and open spaces. It’s one of the largest festivals in Australasia and injects millions into the capital’s economy.
