Sadly, the pandemic is still with us. To honour our duty of care for our artists and the community alike, if an artist gets sick and can no longer travel or perform, or there are other restrictions or conditions to a performance, events may be postponed or cancelled. We will offer exchanges or refunds to our ticket holders should this happen. These will be communicated via the email address used to purchase the tickets. Please keep an eye on your emails and our social media for updates. Wānaka Festival of Colour is committed to the safety and wellbeing of the community, audiences and artists.

The Festival team, artists and audiences are required to comply with the latest Government health advice at the time of the event. We ask for your patience, care, and trust as we navigate running our events at this time.
