The Manawatu International Jazz and Blues Festival is the second oldest jazz festival in New Zealand. More than 30 years the festival ran over Queens Birthday weekend but, through popularity and demand it was decided to expand to the six day long festival we now enjoy.

New Zealand background and overview
The Polynesian Maori reached New Zealand in about A.D. 800. In 1840, their chieftains entered into a compact with Britain, the Treaty of Waitangi, in which they ceded sovereignty to Queen Victoria while retaining territorial rights. In that same year, the British began the first organized colonial settlement. A series of land wars between 1843 and 1872 ended with the defeat of the native peoples. The British colony of New Zealand became an independent dominion in 1907 and supported the UK militarily in both World Wars. New Zealand's full participation in a number of defense alliances lapsed by the 1980s. In recent years, the government has sought to address longstanding Maori grievances.
