The 6th Harcourts Hawke’s Bay Arts Festival is happening from 12-26th October 2020 and includes Labour weekend.
We celebrate this with a 100% homegrown line-up featuring some of Aotearoa's finest talent. With 65 events and over 100 performances, there is something for all tastes.
At the heart of the Festival is Toitoi – Hawke’s Bay Arts & Events Centre and the Opera House as the centrepiece venue, offering a vibrant space for stories to be told, conversations to be shared and much music to be enjoyed.
We have a programme of exceptional experiences that will appeal to locals and visitors alike with a great selection of free and ticketed events.
Our mission is to support our incredible New Zealand artists and performers who bring us messages of strength, challenge, and hope for the future. Pakihiwi ki te Pakihiwi – Shoulder to Shoulder.
