Akarua Arrowtown Autumn Festival

Get ready for 5 days of festival favourites over the ANZAC long weekend. Celebrating the 35th year of the festival the 2019 events will include the iconic Market Day & Street Parade plus the very popular Pie, Pint and Pinot day!

The festival is a celebration of community amongst the backdrop of some of the most beautiful autumn colours you will ever see. Other events include childrens' workshops, a very popular art exhibition, photo competition, gold panning championships, duck race and dog shows to name a few.

Thousands of people flock into Arrowtown to enjoy the 120+ market stalls, sample delicious food, be entertained by musicians and performers. Enjoy amazing pies, fabulous craft beer and wonderful Akarua wines while soaking up the music and atmosphere under the beautiful autumn trees. For 2018 we are excited to offer a concert by the NZ Youth Choir, a not to be missed event!
