Partner with us

Our partners are very important to us. They enable us to grow the festival and can open opportunities for community participation and connection.  “Many hands make lights work!”

We work with you to create a change in perceptions and behaviours around your brand using creative leverage ideas to achieve your goals. We can help you connect with your audience through passion and authenticity, and not just benefits and logos.

Why Festival of Lights?

  • Support a free event that benefits the community.
  • Grow the local economy by bringing to life curation and activation possibilities within our award winning Pukekura Park or within New Plymouth’s CBD.
  • Sustain our community’s well-being through installing a sense of ‘pride of place’ and connection.
  • Help to shape New Plymouth’s creative identity and support our tourism potential.


  • Showcase your brand, business, products, and services to a broad fan base/audience.
  • Increase your media profile throughout New Zealand using our reach and scope of influence and longevity.
  • Opportunities for customer and stakeholder entertainment.

Whether you’re a corporate or philanthropic organisation, or a smaller business with big ideas, we welcome you to get in touch.

The Festival of Lights has been here in Ngāmotu since 1993. The long life and growth of the festival would not have been possible without support from our sponsors and funders, of whom we are truly grateful to.
