The Kāpiti Arts Guide 2016/17 is still current. Download it or pick up a copy for maps and descriptions of the artists who took part in last year's trail and those artists who welcome visitors all year round.

Last year's arts trail (29/30 Oct & 5/6 Nov 2016) brought the district alive with colour and creativity with art showcased in 62 studios, four hubs (featuring 19 artists) and 13 galleries. Mediums included sculpture, paintings, pottery, jewellery, ceramics, glass art, tiles, masks, fibre creations, drawings, prints, collage, mosaics, carvings, weaving, photography, totem poles and furniture.

The two-weekend format, which has been in place for two years, gives visitors more time to plan days out looking at all the art on offer, talking to the artists taking part and experiencing the creativity of the coast.  

The trail has been running for 17 years, involving artists the length of the district from Ōtaki to Paekākāriki and has become one of Kāpiti's most significant cultural events.
