For three weeks during February and early March, this annual festival features over 1,100 artists from around New Zealand and the world, featuring world premieres, new artists and established companies creating new, cutting edge art.

Over 700 events are staged all over the city – in established venues, houses, galleries, cafes, bars, street corners and parks.

Our festival is open access and includes contemporary work in art forms including (but never limited to) audio, busking, cabaret, clowning, comedy, circus, dance, film, fashion, improvisation, music, online, physical theatre, podcast, poetry, puppetry, spoken word / storytelling, theatre, visual & digital art.

In January 2014 National Geographic named NZ Fringe Festival one of 10 international ‘Must Do in February Festivals’ and in November 2014 NZ Fringe Festival won the Wellington Airport Regional Community Award for Arts and Culture.
