A unique site for spectacle, intrigue and personal reflection.


The Performance Arcade examines new ideas, alternative visions, and counter narratives for life in 2018. Now in its seventh year, it has become an anticipated and acclaimed event that defines Wellington creativity and innovation.


Running over two weekends, The Performance Arcade is an accessible and FREE event for all, providing opportunities for arts engagement across all cultures and incomes.


The Performance Arcade is a site for cutting edge new art practices, wananga, public forums and live music. Its unique double story arrangement of shipping containers allows multiple spaces for interaction and relaxation for the Wellington public, offering sites for spectacle, intrigue and personal reflection.


Come for a stroll along the waterfront and experience a diverse selection of live art, performance, installation and audio visual art works. Grab a drink and some food from the food truck and pop-up bar, check out a new local band or pick up a copy of the Live Press - a daily publication by creative writers and critics responding directly to the featured artworks.


The Performance Arcade is open day and night from 10am – 11pm with a full programme of events running across the festival.
