Gig Information

A snapshot of local life in vivid, explosive colour: Newtown Festival celebrates 20 years.

From modest beginnings in Carrarra Park in 1995, the Newtown Festival Street Fair has grown to become New Zealand’s largest free, annual outdoor performance event - with 80,000 people attending in 2015 and more expected next year.

The Street Fair sees eleven blocks closed to vehicles, to make way for tens of thousands of enthusiastic locals and visitors who arrive on Fair Day to a Newtown transformed. Cafes and restaurants spill onto roads and are joined by a huge array of international food stalls. Local craftspeople, community groups and visiting stallholders add their wares to the already diverse array of goods on offer from Newtown’s shops. Buskers and al fresco street performers vie for the attention of passersby, and the occasional innocent bystander is swept up in a samba dance parade.

Many come for the music. Across ten stages, the Newtown Festival Street Fair showcases the incredible wealth of talent that Wellington has become famous for, and music-lovers have come to expect not only their most-loved New Zealand bands, but also the up and comers that will go on to become favourites - after all it was here that groups like Fat Freddy’s Drop and The Phoenix Foundation started out.

Free to all - the Street Fair is a family-friendly party in the heart of Newtown to which everyone is invited.

It's nearly time for the Newtown Festival!

The highlight of your social calendar, when the streets of Newtown are taken over by food and craft stalls, beautiful people and 12 stages worth of music!

There's loads to get amongst, if you've been you know how amazing it is, if you haven't, you're missing out.
