It’s all happening in Whanganui’s annual women’s festival La Fiesta with events on everyday of the week. There are over 100 events that you can be a part of too!

The festival started as the brain child of Whanganui Women’s Network co-ordinator Carla Donson nine years ago.

“I was shocked to learn that not many people seemed to know about International Women’s Day or when it was,” she said.

La Fiesta started on the 14 of February and will wrap on International Women’s Day on March 8. There will be a gala performance of Amdram production Behind Closed Doors to close up the festival.

La Fiesta programmes are available at various venues around Whanganui or online at
