Leonardo’s Picnic

Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Sun 18 Jan ’09, 11:00am – 5:00pm


Frank Kitts Park and Queens Wharf, , Wellington Region

Ticket Information:

  • Free Admission

There is always a major family event at Frank Kitts Park on Wellington Anniversary Weekend, and this year’s theme, Leonardo’s Picnic, ties in with the Academy Galleries’ Leonardo da Vinci Machines exhibition.

The park is full of quality food stalls, an extensive craft market, entertainment for children and adults, music on the concert stage all day and children’s rides and activities. At least one of da Vinci’s machines are tested at a Birdman Competition where competitors try to get as far as they can after jumping from the wharf accompanied by their chosen contraption. Will they fly or crash into the water? Be there to catch the action and “fly”!

Call (04) 384 1998 for postponement and cancellation details from 8am on the morning of the event.

The Academy Galleries host the Leonardo da Vinci Machines Exhibition until Sunday 15 February 2009 and a number of machines have been recreated on a large scale and placed under the canopies on Queens Wharf Square.
