Held biennially over six exciting days and nights of brilliant performances and inspiring exhibitions the festival has its base in Wānaka and has a selection of events around the region in Luggate, Hāwea and Cromwell and Queenstown.

Held in the dramatic months of autumnal splendour when the leaves don gold and the region becomes a place of gilded whimsy, the festival features events in theatre, music, literature, dance, visual arts and sculpture.
