Akarua Arrowtown Autumn Festival

The Akarua Arrowtown Autumn Festival is entering its 35th year and we aim to celebrate in style!

Over the 5 days you can enjoy events such as the Official Opening Ceremony, children's workshops, historic walks around Arrowtown, an outdoor movie, Kids Scarecrow Competition, the Art Exhibition Opening, the Parade and Market day, Pie, Pint and Pinot, the Fun Dog Show, Senior Citizens Afternoon Tea, plus much much more.

There will be lunchtime entertainment on each day between 12-1pm so pop down to Buckingham Green and check it out. Some of our events are ticketed but most are free to attend. Last year many of our events sold out so don't leave it too late to secure your tickets. Saturday the 27th will be the biggest day where we hold our Street Parade and Market Day. The town will be buzzing with people, street performers, musicians and an awesome market where you can purchase NZ made goods - this is not to be missed.

You can also view a stunning array of vintage cars in Buckingham Street from 9am. See you all there!
