La Fiesta is the best and longest-running women's festival in Aotearoa New Zealand. It all happens in our awesome Whanganui town. More proof that all the best stuff happens here! Brought to you and founded by the team at the Whanganui Women's Network.
La Fiesta runs annually every February/March and it is a festival like no other. Its early beginning represented an annual celebration of International Women's Day [every 8 March] and has expanded to include a whole lot of fun, inspiration, motivation, and activities that encourage social connection and celebrate diversity. 2021 marks our biggest festival programme ever with more than 100 events and around 70 festival partners. La Fiesta promises something for everyone. We welcome visitors from all over Whanganui and beyond the region. After all, it's time to do something new New Zealand.
