FESTA 2018: A public festival of architecture, design and food

FESTA, the vibrant biennial celebration of urban creativity and community presented its public festival of architecture, design and food over Labour Weekend.  The 50 plus events that ranged in scope from Dates with Plates to Food for Thought brought thousands back into Christchurch’s city.

Our headline event, FEASTA!, was a night of festivities that combined architectural installations, performance, music, art and lots of great things to eat and drink.  An estimated 12,000-14,000 people participated  in this public feast of architecture, community and food.
