Welcome to the Harcourts Geraldine Festival!

2021 marks the 33rd consecutive year of the Festival in our boutique town of Geraldine, following 30 years known as the Geraldine Arts and Plants Festival.  We are delighted to welcome Harcourts, Blackham & Co., as the Festival’s naming sponsor and principal supporter of the event.

This year the festival official opening will be held on Thursday the 11th November 2021.

The Alpine Energy Art and Photographic Exhibition will have art on display from local artists, as well as from around New Zealand, together with a great selection of photographs. The exhibition opens on Thursday 11th November at 7pm and runs until Sunday 14th November closing at 3pm.

Experience unique, boutique shopping in our wide range of independent local stores and an amazing selection of over 130 stalls on Friday at our market day. A sensational day out for all, save the date and make a day of it with your friends and family to enjoy the beautiful country setting of our wonderful town!

Or, make a weekend of it – but get in quick if you need accommodation as our many fantastic accommodation providers get booked out that weekend.

On Saturday visit the “Big Day” where most retailers in town will be open and over 250 wonderful stalls down at the domain – something for everyone.

We’re excited to bring “Battle of the Sounds” back this year.

A fantastic opportunity for a group, duo or solo artist to walk away with the $3,000 first prize.

We look forward to welcoming you to beautiful Geraldine to enjoy the Free, Friendly, Fun Geraldine Festival.
