Summer Holidays 2019: Graffiato

Taupo Street Art Festival brings together some of the world’s best street artists over Labour weekend (October) every year to transform the town’s walls.
The first street art festival of its kind in New Zealand, Graffiato captures the diversity of mural painting practice in New Zealand, and what’s new and relevant in global urban culture.
Graffiato’s ever-expanding portfolio of over 80 murals brings transformation, wonder and vibrancy to the urban laneways and streets they inhabit.
Even locals continue to find surprises hidden away down these charming back alleys.
