The Nelson Arts Festival is over for another year.

In 2014 we celebrated 20 years of the festival with a spectacular programme, enjoyed by thousands.

Thank you to everyone who supported the festival in so many different ways, whether you were a member of the audience, volunteer, crew, artist, sponsor, accommodation provider, masked parade participant, or teacher. We truly appreciate the involvement of so many people in Nelson who get behind this very special community event.

The success of the Nelson Arts Festival is thanks to you all, plus the many funding partners and sponsors who help bring the event to glorious fruition.

We are now working on the Summer in Nelson programme. Keep an eye out for the brochure that will be distributed to all Nelson households in early December. Plus, plans for the 2015 Nelson Arts Festival are already underway. We will keep you posted about these in the new year.

Have a safe and happy summer.
