Founded in 2011, The Performance Arcade is a free, award-winning festival of live art, music and performance on the Wellington Waterfront.

60,000-90,000 Visitors Each Year

Over the course of two weeks The Performance Arcade welcomes 60-90,000 people to experience this free event.

Art Inside Containers

Open directly to the bustling life of the Wellington Waterfront, our iconic shipping containers are sites of engagement - bringing world class art and performance to the public outside the constraints of a gallery or theatre space.

Local & International Artists

Every year, an exciting selection of performance and installation works from acclaimed performance artists sit alongside a line-up of Aotearoa’s best live music.

Covid-19 Information

Our priority is the health and safety of our audiences, artists and crew. We will continue to adhere to the current Governmental advice and will update our audiences with all salient information as a result of any change in restrictions or guidelines.
