The gates Festival One 2019 will open at 10:00am on the morning of the 25th of Jan and will end at 12pm on the 28th of Jan.
Festival One is multi-day Christian Festival held at Mystery Creek, Hamilton on Auckland & Waikato Anniversary Weekend.
Festival One is in its fourth year and has a broad range of fantastic artists, lots of opportunities for the creative arts and a few other surprises.
Our goal is to create community in the church through music, art and culture. This will be achieved through organic growth, an annually progressing teaching curriculum and outstanding music and arts.
We will release the programme for 2019 later this year. It’s fair to say that the programme for Festival One 2019 is going to be like nothing you’ve seen before.
We can’t wait to share it with you!
Our goal is to make your experience getting onto and around site as easy as possible.
We’ll have a map available soon for you to see exactly where all the action is happening!
They all grow up so fast! Are your young’uns ready to fly the nest (temporarily, under supervision, in a super-fun and safe space)? We’ve got you covered. With a Kids’ Programme for your small ones (5 – 10-year-olds) and a Toddlers’ Programme for your extra-small ones (0 – 4-year-olds), all of Festival One’s little humans will have a space to have the time of their lives AND learn about God’s awesome love—which is pretty much the same thing.
The Toddlers’ Programme will be your good ol’ drop-and-go space, held in its own marquee (next to HQ and close to the One Arena entrance) on Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 9am – 12pm. They will need to bring a water bottle, but we’ll provide an allergy-safe morning tea for our precious, butter-fingered toddlers. Parents, you’ll need to stay on call in case your child needs you – especially for those nappy changes! If nappies need changing, we’ll flick you a text.
You can pre-register from 3 – 4:50pm on Friday night in , or the walk-up registration is open from 8:30 – 9am on the day. Spaces are limited, so please be punctual!
