The Akarua Arrowtown Autumn festival is entering its 36th year and consists of 5
days of fun activities and events to suit people of all ages and nationalities.
The festival is a celebration of community among the backdrop of some of the most beautiful autumn colours you will ever see.
Our events include children's workshops, a very popular art exhibition, photo competition, gold panning championships, duck race and dog shows to name a few.
One of our most iconic events is the parade and market day, which will be held on 18th April. Thousands of people flock into Arrowtown to enjoy the 120+ market stalls, sample delicious food, be entertained by musicians and performers while enjoying our awesome community street parade.
Sunday 19th of April is Pie, Pint and Pinot day which becomes more and more popular each year. Guests enjoy amazing pies, fabulous craft beer and wonderful Akarua wines while soaking up the music and atmosphere under the beautiful autumn trees.
