The Corcoran French Kaiapoi Art Expo is one of Waimakariri’s key art events. Held annually for the past 16 years, the expo brings together hundreds of artworks from over 100 local artists and gives emerging artists and craftspeople an opportunity to display and develop their talents.


Visitors can peruse and purchase the wide range of painting, photography, ceramics, woodwork, textiles, drawing and other mediums on offer at the two day event on July 16th and 17th. If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at a specific medium, head down on the Saturday for the ‘Have-a-go’ event where our talented local artists will be sharing their skills and knowledge with you so you can try painting, pottery, weaving and more. This is a popular event for the whole family.

Come and celebrate our local arts and artists at the Corcoran French Kaiapoi Art Expo from 10am-5pm, July 16th and July 17th, 2022 at The Kaiapoi Club, Raven Quay, Kaiapoi. Gold coin entry includes a comprehensive expo catalogue.
