Planning for the Christchurch Heritage Festival 2020 has been paused due to the COVID-19 response. Once we have a better understanding of what the rest of 2020 might look like we will update this page with developments on Heritage Festival plans for this year.

Beca Christchurch Heritage Festival 2019

It was fantastic to see so many heritage events running across Christchurch, Banks Peninsula and Selwyn during the Beca Christchurch Heritage Festival 2019, 7 to 28 October.  

We would like to thank all those who contributed to making the Heritage Festival successful, particularly the sponsors, event providers and the many attendees.
