We’re back and we can’t wait to hear from you! 

Next year marks our 25th anniversary and to celebrate this milestone we’ll be extending an invitation to audiences across Aotearoa to experience the magic of the Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival. 

For the uninitiated, each year HGAF encompasses the full spectrum of performing arts – where comedy, dance, music, and theatre mingle and merge against the backdrop of the enchanting Hamilton Gardens.

As we continue to grow into one of New Zealand’s largest regional arts festivals, we’ve expanded beyond the Gardens, along the mighty Waikato River and into the CBD. Venues include the Meteor, Clarence St Theatre and Victoria on the River (to name but a few).

We are now welcoming submissions for both new and existing works and we’re particularly interested in proposals for site-specific performances that can be brought to life in the Hamilton Gardens. Dream big!

Check out the plethora of potential venue options here:

To be considered for inclusion in HGAF 2023 (scheduled for 24 Feb-5 March), please take 15 minutes to fill out our Expressions of Interest form. 

Submissions will be open until July 15.

Please note that this is a call out for ticketed events only. We will be inviting expressions of interest for our free and live stage in August.
