About Us

Visually inspiring, the volcanic landscape of Taranaki, with its ring of wild coast beaches, green and pleasant land, myriads of clear streams and bush covered slopes, all providing a beautiful backdrop to a fascinating weekend event held annually each year.

This year the Taranaki Arts Trail are celebrating our 11th year of artist open studios. 

Established in 2014 the Taranaki Arts Trail provides the public with the unique opportunity to meet with artists in their studio/workshops. Ultimately, the aim of the Taranaki Arts Trail is to build a greater understanding in the community of the processes involved and the skills required, in creating a work of art.

The Taranaki Arts Trail is pleased to announce the fourth year of partnering with the Centuria Taranaki Garden Festival with both festivals' opening over the same dates. With the artists studios extended over the two weekends and some artists for the full ten days; this year it provides you; our visitors a greater opportunity to visit and enjoy the artists open studios.  

Taranaki is the destination this spring, find out about events and all the things you can see and do while you are here on our Visit Taranaki page.
