Town and Gown: Dunedin Heritage Festival 2019

Saturday 28 & Sunday 29 September


This year, the Dunedin Heritage Festival is run in partnership with the University of Otago, as part of the year-long celebration of the University’s 150 years.

Town and Gown is an opportunity to visit the beautiful University campus for a wonderful weekend of walks, talks, tours, treasure hunt and exhibitions.

See our Heritage Festival Programme, or view the University of Otago's 1869 Conference Programme .

The Dunedin Heritage Festival is run by the Southern Heritage Trust over the weekend when daylight saving begins. The Trust promotes Dunedin as New Zealand’s heritage city with a biennial festival as a major event on the city’s calendar.
