KOAST is a wonderful art event for Kerikeri each year – this last year over 60 exhibitors took part with over 2000 people attending the trail., many from out of town.

The sixth KOAST will be held from  26 – 28 October 2019 (during Labour Weekend). We are sure 2019 will see many new exhibitors who have not exhibited before, as well as artists from past few years with new and exciting work to display. And some exciting guest artists.

Every year, the Kerikeri Open Art Studio Trail goes from strength to strength with last year’s seeing over 60 exhibitors and more than 3000 visitors.

We had lots of  new exhibitors who had not exhibited before as well as artists from past few years with new and exciting work to display. Painters, jewellers, sculptors, potters, textile artists, photographers, wood workers, furniture makers and many others

And of course the artists can be visited all year round – just check out their listing on this website and give them a call or email them.  Some are open all year, others by appointment.

And if you’re from out of town and are looking for accommodation, you could choose from among our accommodation supporters.

Looking forward to 2019, every year we welcome new members to KOAST – we’d love to hear from you if you live in the Kerikeri area or attend a Kerikeri art group and would like to join 2019. KOAST.
