About the Festival

The Island Bay Festival is back! Have a summer Bay-cation between 12 - 20 February 2022 and discover your community. The Festival is all about sharing the talent and diversity of the South Coast. This year we have many events and opportunities to get involved. With live music, a raft race, cheese festival, prize-winning author talks, dance classes & more - get involved and have fun!


Check the Events page or follow us on Facebook for updates.


Unfortunately the Day in the Bay event and market will not go ahead in 2022. 


The 2022 Festival team are carefully planning events to be safely run under the orange traffic light rules and we follow all guidance provided by MOH and the Wellington City Council.


Please check our Events page for more details for requirements to attend our planned indoor events.
