With over 50 works of art through Katikati, it makes our small town the biggest open air art gallery in New Zealand.

Katikati Open-Air Art is now planning for its 4th biennial New Zealand Mural Contest and Arts Festival. With a new direction for the 2013 festival, Katikati Open-Air Art have contracted Katch Katikati to assist in the organization of the Festival activities.

The theme for this year is Cultural Encounters.

The 2013 festival opens on Monday 30th September with the artists commencing work on their murals on Tuesday the 1st October. The week ahead is full of activities both of an 'arty' nature and also of a 'cultural' nature.

Some of these include but are not limited to:
- Mural tours
- Art exhibitions
- Workshops
- Studio trails
- Children’s activates and entertainment
- Schools involvement from Whakamarama to Waihi of wearable art
- Community projects
- Cultural displays

As part of the festival, on Saturday 5th October we plan to have a lot of activities around Katikati. The hub of this will be an art and craft market in Diggelmann Park from 9am – 3pm. There will be many stall holders, and entertainment during the day. A great day out in Katikati.
