Festival of Colour

The Southern Lakes Festival of Colour is the flagship arts event for the region.

The Southern Lakes Festival of Colour is a biennial celebration of the arts. Six exciting days and nights of astounding performances and inspiring exhibitions set against the spectacular autumnal backdrop of the Southern Lakes. The festival brings world-class musicians, artists and their work, drama (including specially commissions works) and performances, and respected thinkers to Wanaka as the trees turn and put on a stunning display of autumn colour.

The Festival of Colour is the flagship arts event for the region. With numerous successful festivals under their belt, they are still fresh and punch well above their weight. They have established their track record with sell-out seasons of music, theatre and dance performances and are deservedly known as the 'best little arts festival in New Zealand'. Combine your visit to Wanaka for the Festival with superior accommodation and selected local experiences & adventure activities.

What our customers say

  • Release Wanaka were very professional and provided expert services plus excellent suggestions and advice. They provided a wealth of information on Wanaka and the environs and their local knowledge and superb organisation greatly facilitated the planning of our holiday. They also organised various events and private catering in addition to taking care of a myriad of details. Release Wanaka and their staff were very friendly and hospitable and kept in touch with us during or stay, checking up on things and providing information and suggestions on local activities, wineries and restaurants. I would have no hesitation in recommending Release Wanaka based on my experience of their services.
