Labour weekend. At various venues in the central city.
FESTA, the biennial weekend celebration of urban creativity and community returns to Christchurch this Labour Weekend, 19–22 October 2018! It brings life back into the city as thousands of Cantabrians as well as visitors imagine and experience how the city could be different.
This year's theme explores the connections between food and the city through workshops, talks, pop-up projects, meals, family events, tours, live performance, artworks and more.
These take place at various venues across the city over the course of the weekend, beginning on Friday morning (19 October) and ending Monday night (22 October).
FEASTA! is this year's headline event - Christchurch's biggest and brightest street party. This public feast of architecture, community and food is free and open to all.
On Saturday 20 October artists, musicians, community groups, businesses, over one hundred architecture students from across Australasia, and design and architecture professionals will come together to create a spectacular celebration of food and city-making, live for one night only (rain date 21 October).
