Auckland Arts Festival 2017

Taking place annually every March, Auckland Arts Festival is a globally recognised event that celebrates people and culture, cultural diversity and the vibrant energy of NZ's largest city.

The festival programme, a non-stop showcase of NZ and international arts, spans theatre, dance, music and visual arts - ranging from the most gloriously classical to the very edge of contemporary. Add to this the many free and family-friendly events; there is most certainly something for everyone.
