Rangiora Festival of Colour


The Rangiora Festival of Colour 2020 will be held on Sunday 29th March 2020, 10am – 4pm, at Victoria Park in central Rangiora. People will throw vibrant colours, enjoy cultural performances, great music and food with family and friends. Festival of Colour 2020 will focus on bringing life and colour to Rangiora town and celebrating its diversity and energy!

The festival is all about bringing the community together! We expect a crowd of between 3,000-3,500 plus. Our intention is to provide an exciting community festival that reflects the multicultural nature of our North Canterbury home. It will provide opportunities for the many ethnic and cultural groups in the area to make a connection with the wider community through food, music, performance in an exciting and fun way! Importantly this is the only large-scale festival or event in North Canterbury that has a multi-cultural focus.

Festival Philosophy: The Festival will address the lack of any large-scale event that celebrates the multi-cultural nature of our rapidly growing North Canterbury population. We seek to recognise and celebrate not only the strong Maori and European heritage of the region but the increasing growth of "other" New Zealanders as well.

Of course, along with fantastic food, drink, dance, music and performances, the highlight will be the “throwing” of vibrant colours by those attending the festival! Along with colour cannons and colour foam, this throwing of colours is one of the most visually exciting events to come to North Canterbury! www.rangiorafestivalofcolour.co.nz www.facebook/rangiorafestivalofcolour
