Welcome to RESET 2020 - A festival for Aotearoa


We are delighted to present RESET 2020, A Festival for Aotearoa.

This festival is a celebration of our Taranaki and New Zealand artists in all their diversity. The programme is a smorgasbord of shows from light-hearted to inspiring and entertaining, audiences can expect cabaret, comedy, music, and theatre over the two weeks.

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 all-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 as, without your support, we wouldn’t be able to 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.
