Arrowtown Autumn Festival, brought to you by Mora Wines & Artisan Kitchen

In autumn Arrowtown truly comes into its own, as the leaves on the trees turn dazzling gold, red and brown before dropping to the ground in preparation for winter. Over the course of a few weeks in April the forested hill faces that overlook this tiny gold-rush town transform into a richly coloured backdrop and the always photogenic Arrowtown becomes breathtakingly beautiful.

Our favourite part of our favourite season is a community celebration that draws thousands to town over the course of four days. 2024 will be the 38th time we've held the Arrowtown Autumn Festival and it will run from the 25 to 28 April.  There's something for everyone, from the Art Exhibition at the Lakes District Museum, the parade and market day, and the Quiz, along with new events added to the programme each year.

The Arrowtown Autumn Festival is an iconic New Zealand event with something for every age and interest.  Most of the events on the program are free, while others are ticketed.
