MarchFest 2019

Saturday 9th March 2019

Unlike most beer festivals, all the beers available at MarchFest have been specially commissioned for the event and have never previously been tasted by the public.

Top of the South Island craft breweries are showcased at Marchfest as well brews from a different guest region each year.

But MarchFest is not just about beer. Great live music is always a big feature of the event. Previous acts include Alabama 3, Tahuna Breaks, Ladi6, Sola Rosa, Hollie Smith, Mel Parsons, The Miltones, Weird Together, Don McGlashan, The Eastern, John Cooper Clarke and many more..

Add to that local wines, ciders and juices, regional cuisine (including a beer and food matching lunch), Kids Zone and the Brew Zone, 2019 will be our biggest yet.
