Harcourts Hawke's Bay Arts Festival

Cnr Napier Road & Karanema Drive, Havelock North, Havelock North, Hawkes Bay

Come join us over 14 days and 40 shows as we explore, celebrate and grow our connections – to place, people, past and future – through the arts!

With world-class international acts alongside a showcase of local talent, we promise incredible performances, stunning displays, raucous fun and moving, transformative experiences.

From cabaret in the Spiegeltent to dancing in the streets of Napier, from circus tricks and puppet theatre to gritty tales and cutting-edge plays, from classical concerts to popular songs to the quirky off-beat, the Harcourts Hawke's Bay Arts Festival offers something for everyone, and every pocket, in venues and spaces at all our main centres.
