ARTBEAT


ArtBeat is Whangarei’s biggest FREE Interactive Arts Festival open to the whole community in Northland. ArtBeat has been an annual event in Whangarei for the last 23 years and is still going strong. A key component to this event is the Interactive Zone which has at least 10 free interactive art activities for kids and families to participate in.
This annual event has attracted over 8,000 people each year and we hope to continue to grow this event so more people in the community can enjoy this fun, family day out.

In 2019 ArtBeat was held on Saturday 2 February 10am-4pm, once again in the beautiful Cafler Park in Whangarei. There were 7 different zones which included the Food MArket, Entertainment Hub, Interactive Zone, Neverland, Arts & Crafts Market, Community Zone & Youth Zone.
