GET TO THE HUB

The Grassroots Trust Festival Hub is at the heart of the action, with free and live entertainment celebrating local artists and musicians starting at 5pm every night. Thanks to an exciting new partnership with Village, this is also the place to savour the sights and sounds of the festival, relax with a drink and enjoy some incredible locally produced food.

Come together with friends and whanau and take in the sweet, sweet festival vibes, mingle with artists or enjoy a sunset over the stunning Turtle Lake.

The Grassroots Trust Festival Hub and Stage of Enlightenment are made possible thanks to the generous support of the Grassroots Trust, University of Waikato and Norah Howell Charitable Trust.

BEYOND THE GARDENS

Our city is growing, and so are we. With the magical Hamilton Gardens firmly established as the heart of the Festival, we’re excited to extend our footprint to now include the Clarence Street Theatre and Victoria on the River.

Our venues beyond the Gardens will be hosting art activations, theatre, music, comedy, discussion and dance events so you can experience the Festival across our city.

COVID STATEMENT

Kia ora festival lovers, 
 
In accordance with the Govt’s Covid 19 Protection Framework, all attendees to Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival events (including both ticketed and free events) must provide proof of vaccination prior to entry. Ticket holders can now update their Vaccine Pass on EventFinda for streamlined event entry. Alternatively please allow additional time for processing upon arrival. 

Please stay tuned for further communications around how New Zealand’s move into the Red setting of the Covid Management Framework will impact HGAF events. Rest assured all ticket holders will be contacted and have the option of a full refund (minus ticketing fees) in the event of cancellation. We hope you understand that the safety of our audience, artists and festival community is paramount.
