Festival of Words


Nau mai, haere mai ki te tūramatia ngā kupu o te ngākau 2021 / Welcome to Festival of Words 2021.

Literature comes to life in New Plymouth this winter with a fabulous four day programme that will entertain, inspire and educate.

From Thursday 29 July to Sunday 1 August we’re bringing you performances and conversations with some of Aotearoa’s biggest names in the literary arts.

We invite you to come along and enjoy all that our Festival has to offer, explore Puke Ariki, and spread the word.

See you soon,
The Puke Ariki Festival of Words Team
