The South Auckland Performing Arts Competitions Festival is a major event on the Region’s Arts Calendar. It is one of the biggest festivals run under the umbrella of the Performing Arts Competitions Association of New Zealand.

Please note that there will be a gala concert to celebrate our 50th year of competitions – our Golden Jubilee. It will be held on Sunday 3 August at 2.30pm at the Pukekohe Town Hall. Each adjudicator at this year’s festival will be asked to recommend performers/groups to take part to showcase the various ages and areas of the festival. We are also delighted to announce the presentation of the “TopNotch Engraving (Pukekohe) Golden Jubilee Trophy” which will move around the sections and is to be awarded for “Most Entertaining Junior Performer”. This trophy will go hand-in-hand with the Lions Trophy which is awarded to the most outstanding senior performer and also moves around the various sections.
