NZ Festival

Wellington’s festival

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

The 2018 Festival will take place from 23 February to 18 March. The first line-up of events will be announced in August 2017.

How we help

The New Zealand Festival is funded by Creative New Zealand, ticket sales and partnerships with local companies who are passionate about supporting the arts.

We’ve had a long partnership with the New Zealand Festival since (date) and are proud to continue our support for the upcoming 2018 festival. We offer a generous cash donation as well as advertising and publicity within the airport.

We’re looking forward to welcoming visitors from around the country and the world to Wellington's doorstep in February 2018.
