Festival of Colour


  • Festival Of Colour Wanaka New Zealand (map)

We ‘brought the world to Wanaka’ in April 2017 with an outstanding programme of local, national and international arts, with 52 performances across 8 venues, more than 9,000 tickets sold, and 31 sold out shows.

Thanks to all of our performers, sponsors, patrons, benefactors, suppliers, staff, crew, volunteers and those that support us in a thousand small ways. And of course to our audience members and the wider community of Wanaka.

The Festival of Colour is the flagship arts event for the region. With seven successful festivals under our belt, we are still fresh and stylish and punch well above our weight.  We have established our track record with sell-out seasons of music, theatre and dance performances and deservedly known as the ‘best little arts festival in New Zealand’.

Lock in the dates for the next Festival of Colour April 1 – 8, 2019,

plus a special preview performance on March 31.

Our 2019 programme launches on February 11, 2019.

Later Event: May 2
