Created just for children and young people, the National Arts Festival will see national and international artists take over the city! Tamariki will be transported to wonderful new worlds and surprising settings with acrobatics, 3D shadow puppets, music, street performance, comedy, and dance. You’ll see local stories, strange stories, historical tales, unexpected characters and will be inspired by the talented actors and story-tellers. The National Arts Festival is a celebration of performance that ignites and fuels the spark of creativity in the children and young people of Aotearoa.
