I know it's short notice but the Cuba Dupa festival is on this weekend. Who wants to meet 5pm outside the Wellington City Gallery and wander up Cuba Street? Dinner afterwards at the night market.
CubaDupa is Wellington’s vibrant street festival revering the creative spirit of Cuba Street and the Wellington community - "Wellingtonians and visitors love the unique charm of Cuba Street as a backdrop to the marvellous performances of CubaDupa," says Mayor Celia Wade-Brown.
CubaDupa brings all walks of life together in an immersive experience to ‘Get On Up’ during the day or ‘Get On Down’ in the evening – restaurants and cafes will spill into the streets to create a culinary cacophony; people will flow through the streets and lane-ways, exploring the myriad of spaces filled with activity, music, dance, circus, theatre, and installation.
CubaDupa has a focus on audience participation and events that break down the barrier between performer and audience.
