Over the weekend of 24 and 25 March 2018, Wellington’s most iconic street is transformed to a magical interactive playground of delight, sound and taste.

CubaDupa brings all walks of life together in an immersive experience where restaurants will spill into the streets to create a culinary cacophony; people will flow through the streets and laneways, exploring the myriad of spaces filled with activity, music, dance, circus, theatre, and installation. This is your celebration of our amazing city - we can't wait to dance, eat and meet in the street with you!
