RESET 2021

RESET festival returns 4-14 November 2021 after the success of the 2020 festival.

RESET celebrates arts, culture and live performances, an end of year festival fix suitable for all generations and appetites for entertainment.

This festival features some of the most inspiring, thought-provoking, and culturally entertaining performances produced in New Zealand over the last few years.
This diverse two-week festival is brimming with dance, comedy, music, and theatre, an impressive programme featuring shows that have sold out venues around the country.

RESET is a unique festival experience that showcases additional community events held in theatres, halls, and venues around Taranaki.

We encourage you to experience as many of these performances as you can. Book your tickets early. Now is the time to fill your cup with creativity and culture! Prepare to be reset and energised from this impressive New Zealand line-up and all the additional events that make up this unique festival programme.

The Taranaki Arts Festival has a long-recognised history, and this year celebrates its 30th anniversary. TAFT would like to acknowledge and thank festival partners, patrons, and sponsors. Without your support, we wouldn’t deliver or present the calibre of performances we bring to the region for this unique festival. Thank you for helping us bring Taranaki more alive with the arts than ever.
