Wellington's summer festivals
There's nothing like an outdoor festival with great food, sweet tunes and refreshing beverages to make it feel like a proper summer. Wellington's summer festival line-up has something for everyone.
Wellington Pride Festival - Tū Whakahīhī e Te Whanganui-ā-Ta
21 Feb – 8 Mar 2020
Waitangi Park, 107 Cable Street , Wellington
Every year Tū Whakahīhī e Te Whanganui-ā-Tara celebrates the LGBTQIA+ community with two weeks full of a diverse range of events, performances and activities organised by groups within the community. The Wellington Pride Festival is organised by an elected volunteer Board from our LGBTQIA+ community, Wellington Pride, who are committed to creating an inclusive festival with and for our diverse queer whanau. Please support their community and Festival by donating via give-a-little. They couldn't do what they do without the generous help from their sponsors. Thank you all!
