Bay of Islands Jazz & Blues Festival

Keeping warm up north (mid-Aug)


Toe-tapping fun for three days at various venues in Paihia and Russell in Northland’s Bay of Islands, when jazz and blues musicians gather from all over New Zealand and overseas.

Make the most of the ‘winterless north’.

Winter: Jun, Jul & Aug
