2016 Festival tickets on sale now

Welcome to the 2016 Harcourts Hawke’s Bay Arts Festival!

We’re thrilled to return for our second season with a new and exciting programme of theatre, dance, music, cabaret, comedy, literature and more. We have artists coming from USA, Australia, UK and from all over New Zealand bringing amazing talent and world-class performances right to our doorstep.

With 55 performances over 13 days, we hope you will take this opportunity to immerse yourself in all that the festival has to offer. The festival hub will once again be a magnificent Spiegeltent on the Havelock North Village Green, with additional venues in Napier, Hastings and Havelock North.

Last year, tickets sold out in record time, so book early and enjoy this magnificent feast of arts and culture.
