Harcourts Hawke's Bay Arts Festival

Welcome to the 2017 Harcourts Hawke’s Bay Arts Festival

The Pacific Crystal Palace Spiegeltent – Havelock North Domain - 26th September - 8th October 2017

October sees the return of the Harcourts Hawke’s Bay Arts Festival.

Following the stellar success of the Festival in 2016, this year’s event promises to serve up another cultural feast, featuring an outstanding array of local national and international talent.

With 53 performances over 13 days, there’s plenty to choose from including theatre, dance, music, cabaret, comedy, children’s shows, visual arts and a stunning Readers and Writers programme.

At the heart of the Festival will be The Pacific Crystal Palace - a magnificent, New Zealand-built Spiegeltent on the Havelock North Village Green. Satellite venues including the Municipal and Century Theatres in Napier, the Blyth Performing Arts Centre at Iona College and several unique performance spaces in Hastings will make this a truly Hawke’s Bay-wide event.

Last year’s tickets sold out in record time, so book now and avoid disappointment.
