The theme for the 2017 NZ Mural Contest and Arts Festival is: "The Future is our Children". And once again, we have an action-packed week booked in.
The Festival will commence on 30th September 2017 with Mad Hatters Tea Party, Street Market and loads of activities.
We have 7 artists painting their murals during the festival week, and they are totally awesome artists. Two from Australia, one from the USA, one form South America and a couple of Kiwis! Their submissions are very impressive!
We have a sculpture competition, photography and songwriting competitions for people to enter.
Everyday there are new events and activities to keep everyone entertained and involved. We finish the week with an amazing Art and Craft Market, circus workshop and loads of entertainment throughout the town. Finishing up finally with the Prizegiving in the evening.
