Everything you need to know! 

This season of TSB Festival of Lights is running from Saturday 17 December 2022 - Sunday 22 January 2023.

Located at Pukekura Park in the heart of New Plymouth, the TSB Festival of Lights is an award-winning, free community event made up of mesmerising light installations and a range of entertainment, kids and seniors events, and a Festival Hub.

History of TSB Festival of Lights

In 1953 a fountain was installed in Pukekura Park's Fountain Lake, to commemorate the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, with lights installed on Poet's Bridge and around the Main Lake.

In 1955 Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh visited New Plymouth and lights were added to the new fountain for them to enjoy. It was the 1970s when music and entertainment became a feature of the annual lights event, and it was 1993 when we were officially named the 'Festival of Lights'.

We have been growing ever since then, and now offer 5 weeks of events and lights!
