La Fiesta Women's Festival

New Zealand's 'best women's festival' has been proudly celebrated in Whanganui since 2010.

February 12 to March 12


The Women’s Network is proud to bring this event to Whanganui every year and 2022 is their thirteenth festival. La Fiesta is a true celebration of all that’s wonderful about women in our community.

The festival covers everything from art, music and dance, to workshops, educational talks, lectures, meditation, movement, yoga, and a whole heap of fun. It’s a great way to build confidence, get motivated, meet new people. It is the only women’s festival of its kind in the country.

Expressions of interest to participate as a presenter or festival partner are currently open and close 20 November.
