Hawke's Bay Arts Festival returns to the Bay for its seventh high-quality, multi-genre Festival, happening from October 16 to 31, 2021.

The Hawke's Bay Arts Festival programme includes some fantastic local and national artists bringing live theatre, music, comedy dance and literary events to Hawke’s Bay, in an exceptional feast for the senses presented at Toitoi Hawke’s Bay Arts and Events Centre, in Hastings, and other venues across the Bay.

You might choose to experience great stories from across New Zealand, music from some of the most iconic local and national artists, mixed with a sprinkling of comedy.  Free community events and exhibitions will further enhance the programme offering accessible to everyone.

Be open to immerse yourself in the diverse offering of the Festival line-up and feel the magic of live performance, community connection and the arts alive in this beautiful region.

We can't wait to see you in October!
