Crankworx Rotorua took flight in March of 2015, becoming the first festival outside of North America and Europe. Since then, it’s played host to some of the most memorable moments in Crankworx history and is now referred to “the soul of Crankworx” due to the unique ability to combine riding with culture.
This year, Crankworx Rotorua will once again be the final stop of the World Tour, celebrating the seasons’ champions, including the crowning of the King and Queen of Crankworx.
Crankworx Rotorua is returning from 5-13 November 2022!
Festival Passes will be released later in the year.
Plan Your Trip
Crankworx Rotorua sets up shop on New Zealand’s North Island, shaking up crowds in an area known for its explosive capacity. With boiling mud, steamy hot springs and geysers routinely shooting 30 feet of water in the air, the Volcanic Plateau where Rotorua sits is a perfect home for gravity-fueled antics. Those who come out to join us can enjoy touring spectacular glaciers, picturesque fjords, mountains, plains, subtropical forest and miles of gorgeous sandy coastline, when not taking in the competition circuit, of course.
Rotorua has an amazing selection of hotels with something for every budget. Whether you choose to be central to town or close to the Whakarewarewa Forest trails – we’ve got you covered. Many of our hotel partners also have mountain bike storage and wash down facilities if you’re bringing your bike with you.
