About CubaDupa

CubaDupa is a free, family friendly event, open to all ages and encouraging community spirit. Held across the last weekend of March, the perfect celebration to bookend the Wellington summer and we are ecstatic to let you know we will be back on the streets for 2020!

With 17 curated hours of entertainment, spanning the genres and creative mediums, CubaDupa has something to offer everyone. Artistic installations, parades, music on stages, DJ's, dance, roaming acts, children’s activities and workshops, The Extravaganza Fair, our annual Moore Wilson’s Street Food Festival, and one-off licensed areas in the completely pedestrianised Cuba Street Precinct.

We are passionate about providing a festival that focuses on artistic immersion and accessibility. Combining artists from local, national and global stages, our focus is set on enriching our community with artistic excellence through inclusion, participation and artistic exploration.  

CubaDupa is nurtured under umbrella of Wellington’s Creative Capital Arts Trust, a non-profit organisation looking out for the arts and artists alike, also housing the fabulous New Zealand Fringe Festival.

Here at CubaDupa we stand for the extraordinary and are proud to host the ultimate platform of transformation, discovery, innovation and extraordinary cultural experiences in the heart of the Creative Capital.
