Events and festivals

Christchurch is renowned for its festivals and cultural events, playing host to a huge calendar of events with something happening every month of the year.

We aim to 'inspire passion for the lifestyle qualities and identity of Christchurch.'

The Christchurch City Council is a strong supporter of events and festivals. We are committed to remaining a leading events destination in New Zealand.  

We are continually developing new event ideas and host a major iconic event every season – from the Ellerslie International Flower Show in early autumn, to the most long-standing city festival held in spring: New Zealand Cup and Show Week.

There are always quality sporting and community events on around the city.
