Time to dust off the glad rags and get in the party mood one week before the Festival of Colour starts. Dress to impress (come in black and white, or black tie optional) for our Celebration of the Arts cocktail party.

Please join us for the social occasion of the year and catch up with the Wanaka arts community as we celebrate the kick off of the 2017 Festival of Colour.
Ticket sales and proceeds from an auction you will not want to miss will help us fund a brand new, inspiring and very special work we will specially commission for the 2019 Festival.

You will be entertained by a mesmerising jazz trio, and have the chance to bid for artworks by Richard Adams, Flox, Michel Tuffery and Simon Kaan, an incredible helicopter flight, gorgeous local wine, golf at The Hills and heaps more incredible donated experiences and goodies. Download the Auction Catalogue here.

Guest speaker Rima Te Wiata will join Wanaka’s very own film buff and popular QLDC councillor Calum Macleod talking about life, movies and everything! Rima is well known for her many TV and movie roles, most recently in ‘Hunt for the Wilderpeople’.

Ticket price of just $45 includes a complimentary drink on arrival (followed by cash bar), canap├ęs and platters.

All proceeds from this event go to the Festival
