CultureFest 2021

Check out the two week series of events celebrating CultureFest from 28 September to 10 October.

Cancellation Update:

Sunday 26 September 2021
Lincoln Event Centre and Domain

Unfortunately we have made the difficult decision to cancel our main CultureFest event on Sunday 26 September.

Due to the uncertainty of the situation with COVID-19 alert levels, we are unable to proceed with this event. We have taken into consideration all parties and we feel this is the best and safest option for the Selwyn community.

In level two, there are still some great smaller community events that will continue as part of the CultureFest series, find out more details here.

We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

We hope to see you for the full CultureFest series in 2022.


Selwyn District Council is embarking on a journey to become more sustainable.

Lincoln University is proud to be supporting the Council in making CultureFest more sustainable by minimising waste from this event. Food stallholders will be using certified compostable packaging to help reduce waste. Bin stations will be onsite for separating rubbish, recycling and organics.


Lincoln University – Future Leaders are proud to be providing CultureFest with an army of volunteers to enable the event to run smoothly. Thank you for also providing the Lincoln University – Future Leaders Volunteers Room where our volunteers can rest and recover.

We are grateful for the Christchurch Multicultural Council to be able to provide the stage management for the day. Thank you for partnering with us for over five years in delivering amazing cultural acts on the Christchurch Multicultural Council stage.
