What is Festival One?

Born in the summer of 2015, the festival has now run continuously for 3 strong years. Festival One is back for 2018, hitting the stage at Mystery Creek Event Centre from 26th – 29th January.

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. Their 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.

What’s it like?

Picture this. A warm summers afternoon, sitting with a bunch of mates at the Music Box (a stage on the back of a truck) sipping on freshly squeezed OJ, listening to Strahan woo you with his silky tones. Imagine lining up with a plate, a knife and a fork, the smell of Argentinian style BBQ wafting past your nose, when a heap of fresh produce is lumped onto your plate, followed up by a nice thick cut of export quality beef. Imagine sitting in the One Arena surrounded by thousands of people, listening to some of the best theologians the world has to offer tackling some of the biggest questions in a natural, open conversation. Yeah well Festival One is something like that.
