The critically acclaimed Just So Festival from the UK is coming to New Zealand in February 2018 and will be the only arts camping festival in New Zealand dedicated solely to children and their families..

The Just So Festival offers an array of literature, art, theatre, dance, music, comedy, circus, and creative adventures in a natural and safe setting. Underpinned by the Tribal Tournament, the most bonkers competition in the land, it takes audiences (from bumps to great grandparents) on a unique expedition of mischief and mayhem, to lands full of magical midnight feasts, curious creatures, raucous pillow fights, hidden retreats, top notch food and drink, boutique camping options and breathtaking beauty. As the founders of the festival, Sarah Bird and Rowan Hoban say, “If we don’t give you goosebumps, we are not doing it right”.

Now in its 8th year in the UK, and after a sell-out inaugural year in Brazil 2016, Just So Festival New Zealand is proud to take its own place in the stunning natural setting of Kaitoke Regional Park in Upper Hutt.
