The countdown is on for the Arrowtown Autumn Festival

Mar 30, 2023

The Arrowtown Autumn Festival is back from April 20 to 25 with an action-packed programme with something for everyone.

Festival coordinator Catherine Fallon says the festival is all about celebrating New Zealand's favourite (and most colourful) little town as it shines during the autumn months.

Now in its 37th year, the festival is set to impress with 50-plus food, wine, music, art and sporting events to be held over six days.

The festival, proudly supported by Mora Wines & Artisan Kitchen, has a wide range of events, with something for festival-goers of all ages.

The stunning scenery's a given, plus there are festival attractions such as the street parade, market day, autumn fun runs, highland fling, pie, pint and pinot, autumn exclusive lunch, super seniors’ high tea, comedy night and much more.

The main event day is set for Saturday April 22, with the ASB Market Day and Bayley’s Arrowtown Community Parade. This year's market will feature more than 100 stalls, with a focus on New Zealand-made products ranging from arts and crafts, to jewellery, clothing and delicious local artisan food.

This is a community event focused on community fun and will include plenty for the tamariki to enjoy, with an impressive kid’s zone, circus shows, the great scarecrow trail, juggling and art workshops.
