The Southern Lakes Festival of Colour is an exciting biennial celebration of the arts. Six exciting days and nights of astounding performances and inspiring exhibitions set against the spectacular autumnal backdrop of the Southern Lakes.

The Festival is based in Wanaka but reaches out to the wider region – to Queenstown, Luggate, Hawea and Cromwell. Be inspired… astounded… in Wanaka…be there!

The fifth Festival of Colour came to a close on April 21st 2013 after a week of sell-out performances, standing ovations bringing some of New Zealand’s leading musicians, actors and artists to the Southern Lakes region. We look forward to seeing you in 2015!
