The Christchurch Arts Festival

Christchurch Arts Festival

As the nights grow long and the temperatures drop, the scene is set for Christchurch's bold and dynamic new Arts Festival – a carnival of delights that ignites the heart of the city, bringing light and warmth to the depths of winter.

Experience music, light, food and performance, as our extraordinary artists 'return home' to celebrate their connections to this unique place, and inspire us to explore who we are, where we have come from, and our bold new path as a city of transformation and change.

From the free opening extravaganza, to shows, talks, workshops and performances, this is a chance to enjoy and indulge, while embracing Ōtautahi's proud reputation for daring creativity. Grab your friends and whānau and don't miss the chance to get amongst it!
