Confirm your event
Decide when to hold your event by picking any date and time between Sunday 22 March and Sunday 19 April that suits you. We are planning a special festival launch event on Saturday 21 March and ask that no other events are organised that day.
The 2020 festival dates include both the Easter public holidays (Friday 10 April - Monday 13 April) and the first week of the school holidays (Friday 10 April - Sunday 26 April). We'd love to see lots of wh?nau-friendly events during these times, so please make the most of these dates if they suit your event and target audience.
Register your event
Register your event by 11.59pm on Sunday 2 February 2020 to be included in the print programme. Any registrations received after this date will only appear in the online event calendar.
Early bird special: Events registered before Tuesday 31 December 2019 will receive special promotion via our Facebook page, to increase visibility for your event.
Promote your event
Event hosts will receive a promotion support pack, with a poster template, Facebook event images and tips on how to promote your event.
We have a special workshop aimed at event organisers on Saturday 30 November 2019 - check out our How to run a zero waste event and come along to learn more from two zero waste event experts.
