ABOUT THE KATIKATI ARTS FESTIVAL
ARTS SINCE 2006
The Katikati Festival of Arts is a biennial event, hosted by Katikati Open Air Art since 2006.
The event continues to grow and develop and this year is a month long celebration of the arts.
Along with many other artists, performers, musicians and entertainers that are part of the festival, mural artists will be sharing their talents and skills as part of the NZ Mural Contest.
This year’s Mural Contest theme is ‘Celebrating Unsung Heroes in 2020’ and the festival theme is ‘Lighting Up the Town’.
Katikati Open Air Art is excited that arts and culture is now recognised as an integral part in the life of our community. The arts spirit is due to the foresight and commitment the original Katikati Open Air Art committee had 30 years ago when they set about developing our amazing outdoor art gallery to highlight the importance of arts within a community.
