Upsurge Bay of Islands Arts Festival

Upsurge Bay of Islands Arts Festival is a biennial arts festival held in and around the beautiful Bay of Islands region. The festival runs over six action packed days and nights presenting a diverse programme of performance genres from New Zealand and afar.

We host our performances in special venues right around the region, from the magical Duke of Marlborough Hotel to the rustic historic beauty of the Waimate North Showgrounds Hall. Our little festival is all about celebrating our own regions unique identity and creating memorable experiences for everyone to enjoy!

Be sure to lock the dates in your diary and plan your visit to the beautiful north.
