At one with nature – the perfect family ‘Just So Festival’  23rd – 25th February 2018

Wellington’s Calendar of Annual Events

The calendar of annual events and festivals in Wellington is good enough to rival any capital in the world. Some events have long-standing iconic status while others are brand new and exciting. We advise you contact us before arriving for an up-to-date summary of what’s on in the capital so you make the most of your stay.

Packed with elements of high quality literature, art, theatre, comedy, circus, dance and more the multi-award winning Wellington Just So Festival allows children of all ages to magically transport themselves to a wonderland. Marvellous creatures, pillow fights, midnight feasts and stories around the camp-fire will be the norm. Thrown into the mix are hidden retreats, artisan food, live music and bush-craft.

If you’re into street parties, stand-up comedians and like checking out what’s new on the music front, you’re in luck, Wellington has them covered. The annual food, film and fringe festivals bring the city alive. Similarly, the Christmas Santa Parade is a must-do for both children and adults alike. If you are interested in fashion come to Wellington in September and marvel at the spectacular World of Wearable Arts show.

Timing of Annual Events

Although most of the ‘action’ takes place during the Summer (December – March) you will also find plenty going on the rest of the year. You never know, the chances of visiting Wellington whilst one or more of these events are on is pretty high. Call or email us for more information and even a detailed itinerary.
