The Hawke’s Bay Arts Festival is happening again - from 16-31st October 2021, and includes Labour weekend.
We celebrate this 7th Festival with a 100% homegrown line-up featuring some of Aotearoa's finest talent. With 65 events and over 100 performances, there is something for all tastes.
At the heart of the Festival are the stories that we share in amazing spaces across the region. Gather friends, whanau and come together in community to hear the stories told, to share conversations and much music to be enjoyed.
We have a programme of exceptional experiences that will appeal to locals and visitors alike with a great selection of free and ticketed events.
Our mission is to support our incredible New Zealand artists and performers who bring us messages of strength, challenge, and hope for the future.
