Saturday: Devonport Arts Festival
Devonport Hospice, 36 Victoria Rd, Devonport, Auckland
Ralphe Music pitch: Outside Hospice.
We’re really excited to be bringing together a fantastic array of events that will delight and inspire all ages. This year we’re doing it a little differently, creating a festival hub in a space that is not used enough in Devonport – the Band Rotunda. There will be a large and interactive art installation that asks visitors to make stalagmites from salvaged perspex. It’s going to be original, beautiful, and best of all, fun. In addition there will be music down the main streets, artist talks and exhibitions in The Post Office and in our galleries, workshops as far out as Bayswater, gigs at The Vic and live art on the BNZ building.
The event is kicking off with a Friday after Five twilight party on Friday 5th April that will see food trucks on Flagstaff Terrace, live music, art activities for children, a picnic area, free sketch classes and large roaming puppets.
We give our thanks to the event funders/sponsors this year; The Devonport-Takapuna Local Board, the Devonport Business Association and Harcourts.
