You are invited to a free celebration with one of Wellington’s most exciting, diverse, and vibrant communities.
This is Newtown’s party to which all of Wellington, all of New Zealand, indeed all of the world is invited!
The absolute stand-out feature of the Festival is the wide range of music and other performance. We showcase emerging and established performers from our diverse community and from the vibrant Wellington music scene, as well as visiting national and international artists.
In 2019, the Fair will again feature 14 music stages and all day free entertainment for all ages: parades, street performers, outdoor circus, street sports and games.
Newtown is famous for its cafes and bars. During the Festival many of them come out into the street, where they are joined by more than 420 other stalls providing a huge variety of ethnic and international food as well as crafts, fashion, homewares and much more!
Newtown Festival is also a leader in waste management at events, with our goal being Zero Waste - our food stalls are all encouraged to use compostable containers and cutlery and we feature waste management stations where volunteers help Fair goers to put all their waste into the right bin.
