Update: Due to the ever-evolving COVID-19, we are sad to interrupt you with the message that CubaDupa 2020 will no longer go ahead.
The last weekend of summer will see CubaDupa return to the streets of Wellington on the 28th and 29th of March 2020 for the most vibrant and creative event on the calendar.
This free, family friendly event, boats over 19 hours of curated entertainment spanning the genres and creative mediums, and has become synonymous with colour, character, costume and a weekend at which Wellingtonians feel free to bring out their wild side.
With previous programmes including street theatre, dance, roving performances, family entertainment, musical genres from opera to Te Reo thrash metal, second line brass to Balkan beats, indie rock to post punk and dozens of parades, as well as visual, kinetic and tactile installations - the festival has become a creative playground that blurs the line between the audience and performer.
Combining artists from local, national and global stages our focus is about enriching the community with artistic excellence. Offering inclusion, participation and artistic exploration for all, the soul of Cuba St will come to life with over 300 performances by 1500 artists and the annual Moore Wilson’s Street Feast which includes over 100 food vendors and licensed areas in the completely pedestrianised Cuba Street Precinct.
Come, feast your senses and bring out your wild side!
