Christchurch Heritage Festival

An annual festival held in Christchurch and Banks Peninsula to celebrate the heritage of our district.

The Christchurch Heritage Festival is an opportunity to share the stories of the past that link us to this place. He tātai muka, he tātai tangata – weave together the strands, weave together the people. 

Christchurch Heritage Festival 2023

It was fantastic to have more than 95 heritage events running across Christchurch, Banks Peninsula and Selwyn from 6 to 23 October.  

We would like to thank all those who contributed to the success of the 2023 Heritage Festival programme, particularly the event providers and the many attendees.
