ARTBEAT 2023: CALL OUT FOR ENTERTAINERS

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 25 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.

There are 7 zones at the event to participate in throughout the day

FOOD MARKET

Eat street is where the food vendors will be selling a range of delicious food from ice blocks to Turkish bread to Asian Cuisine to donuts and more!

ART & CRAFT MARKET

Packed in near the rose garden end of the park will be all the amazing arts and crafts stall holders as well as a busking site to keep up the event vibe.

YOUTH
ZONE

The youth zone is the place to be for teenagers to take part in a range of fun activities and get to know the organisations working with you and study options.

NEVERLAND AREA

The Neverland space is for children and younger family members to get beautiful face paint designs and hunt for treasure.

COMMUNITY
ZONE

This is the home base for not-for-profit organisations, community groups and events in Whangarei and around Northland to promote their services.

ENTERTAINMENT HUB

The main stage will feature continuous entertainment throughout the day with a viewing area for the audience to watch the performances, such as singing, dancing, theatre and much more.

INTERACTIVE ART ZONE

This zone has various free creative activities for kids and families to get involved in such as painting, beading, giant bubbles and more.

GOING WASTE FREE

This event is a Zero Waste event. We encourage our stallholders to use sustainable packaging for food and reduce the use of plastic. We will have recycling and compost bins at the event available to the public.

VOLUNTEERS
