Best Fest

Whakau Reserve/Taylor's Mistake

Saturday 8th August 2020, 12:30 - 3:30pm

On Saturday 8 August, a wave of performances will transform streets into stages right across the Waikato. Best Fest, a region-wide performing arts festival, is a COVID-19 response encouraging people back into public spaces and enhancing the wellbeing of our towns through art and creativity.


Thanks to Creative Waikato and funding from Trust Waikato and WEL Energy Trust, Best Fest is bringing soul back to the street after one heck of a 6 months! 


Representing Whitianga, Best Fest will take place on Saturday 8 August, from 12:30pm - 3:30pm at Whakau Reserve/Taylors Mistake, Whitianga. (N.B Rain location: outside the old 100% Whitianga store, corner of Albert & Lee St). 


We’ve got a great little lineup for this pop-up event: 


* Jazz duo Dave Mulholland & Yvette Audain

* Rapper/producer Chance Taiaroa Haddon + guests 

* Folk/punk duo Let’s Go Descarrego


If you’re out and about in town on Saturday, feel free to stop by, say hi and soak up some local arts!
