Cancelled and postponed Wellington events

Here's a list of events that have been cancelled, postponed and suspended throughout the Wellington region due to COVID-19. We'll be updating this list regularly

The global COVID-19 outbreak and the Government’s associated restrictions on international travel, mass gatherings and social distancing has resulted in events across the region needing to amend their 2020 dates.

Below is a list of events in Wellington that have been cancelled, postponed or suspended over the coming months. This list will be updated regularly as information comes to hand.

We encourage you to continue supporting local and NZ musicians and performers wherever possible – every album/EP or item of merch you purchase goes a long way to supporting the arts community in these uncertain times.
