CubaDupa is Wellington’s new, vibrant street festival revering the epic creative spirit of Cuba Street and the Wellington community. Over the weekend of 28th and 29th March 2015, Wellington’s most iconic street will be transformed to a magical interactive playground of delight, sound and taste.

The roads will become pedestrianised from Manners Street up to Karo Drive and between Taranaki and Victoria Streets (with the exception of Vivian Street) to beguile Cuba Street alive with a myriad of dance, music, theatre, live street art, carnival, circus, and street food.

In true Street Festival style the premise of CubaDupa is that the audience will help create the show. Midday Saturday, CubaDupa will kick off with a mass choir involving six different choirs starting from different areas of the festival site and processioning through the streets converging to come together to sing a piece especially created for CubaDupa.

Stages will be dotted around the site and throughout the day and evening performers will appear at various times on stages and on the street – forming many small processions and vignettes.

The Cuba Quarter is undeniably a home of eclectic tastes, with delightful flavours from around the world. Saturday 28th March the Street Food Festival offers over 60 food experiences - served on the street from restaurants, cafes, and bars who proudly call Cuba Street home. Sunday 29th March will be Dining in the Streets, turning Cuba St into a large outdoor café!

So join the celebration and do the CubaDupa!
