Colour the Night 2016, held on Thursday 14th July, was a huge success and our thanks to the hundred of people involved and more than two thousand who attended.

Colour the Night 2017 will take place on Thursday 20th July. Mark this date in your calendars! More information will be posted here as it is available. 


What is it?

Colour the Night is a one night event for local arts, cultural groups and organisations to open their doors for a cross-promotional night out to bring the public into arts spaces and celebrate Rotorua’s rich variety of culture.

We will be filling all participating venues with art, music, dance, fun, laughter and food. It is a great chance for local art and cultural groups to showcase what they are doing over winter. This event is for locals and visitors to explore central Rotorua through an artistic lens for FREE. There will be lots of things to see, new things to try and lots of people to meet. Grab your friends, family, coat, hat and scarf and come along to check it out!

Where is it?

Venues for Colour The Night 2017 are yet to be confirmed! Check back with us again soon.
