Vogel St, Street Party
When: Saturday 3:00pm - 10:00pm 18th October.
Where: Vogel Street, Dunedin.
Celebrate the creative energy that is being channelled into the Vogel Street neighbourhood. Once a thriving hub of Dunedin’s commercial and industrial growth, new life is being breathed into these streets and buildings to awaken some of the grandeur of their former glory. It’s all part of the Warehouse Precinct Revitalisation Plan.
During the Arts Festival numerous walls within the vicinity of Vogel Street will become awash with colour as they are transformed into dazzling new picturescapes by national and international artists including some of the world’s best street artists, Pixel Pancho (Italy), Phlegm (UK) and Be Free (Australia).
On Saturday 18 between 3pm and 10pm, Vogel Street (from Queen’s Garden to Jetty Street) will be closed to traffic and will take on a carnival atmosphere. Musicians, street performers, opportunities to play and create, and food vendors will beckon the public to come and enjoy the family friendly pedestrian space.
Many buildings throughout the Warehouse Precinct will open their doors for the public to view their transformed interiors. The streetscape will be illuminated at night. The Vogel Street, Street Party adds great community colour to the closing weekend of the Arts Festival.
