Summer at Q

Summer at Q signals the start of the festival season – Pride Festival, Fringe Festival, Auckland Arts Festival, Comedy Festival – more festivals than you can shake a (rain) stick at. While each of these festivals have their own unique voice, for Q it means we’ll be chockablock full of hot theatre, sizzling dance, cool music, and fresh art. Q’s cafe, bar & restaurant Citizen Q will also be busy, dishing up delicious food and drinks to keep you nourished between shows.

Good food, fine wine, greattheatre – all in a cool urban location. It’s like Melbourne, but right here.


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.
