Artsy Fartsy Experience in Great Lake Taupo

If arts and culture is what lures you to the region, consider yourself well placed, as this region offers everything from urban street art, futuristic and modern sculptures, cultural art exhibitions and coffee at quite possibly one of New Zealand’s most colourful cafes.

Great Lake Taupo is proud to be home to New Zealand’s premiere street art festival, Graffiato. This festival sees a plethora of weird and wonderful, bright and bold and unique murals and street art dotted around Taupo; on the sides of buildings or on the pavement, you never know where they will pop up.

Taupo is also home to the bi-annual Erupt Festival. From humble beginnings in 1996, this iconic event is now the signature arts and culture event for the Central Plateau.

Whether a casual stroll through the Taupo art gallery or Museum is your cup of tea or you time your visit with one of the many Taupo art events on offer in the region, one thing is for certain, you will certainly get your artsy farsty fix in this haven for New Zealand's arts and cultural delights.
