11 — 29 March 2020 

Taking place each March, Auckland Arts Festival fills Auckland Live venues (including Aotea Centre, Aotea Square, Auckland Town Hall and the Bruce Mason Centre) with an exceptional line-up of theatre, dance, music, circus and cabaret shows from New Zealand and around the globe set to inspire, provoke and entertain.

A globally recognised celebration of art and culture, Auckland Arts Festival is a place for ambitious ideas by storytellers, provocateurs and creators and reflects our contemporary, cosmopolitan city with its many communities. Don't miss out!


Our 12th festival contrasts the tough stuff with escapism and elation, laughter and excitement. Reminding us of the joyfulness of human life in gleeful celebration of all that is fun and good in the world.
