Marchfest 2020

Saturday 14th March 2020

Marchfest is a celebration of all things Craft Beer and an event for the whole family!

After successful sold-out events in 2018 and 2019, the iconic Marchfest craft beer and music festival is back and better than ever.

It will be held on the 14th March 2020 at Founders Park in Nelson - New Zealand’s main hop growing region (top of the South Island).

2020 highlights:
- Set in the historic village of Founders Heritage Park, Nelson
- 10 of the best Top of the South brews
- 5 specially selected NZ wide brews.
- Tasting bar
- Cool live music including The Chills, Bella Kalolo, Alae, Estella and Bosho.
- Family-friendly entertainment, games and activities
- Local artisan food and a range of non-alcoholic beverages
- Option to join the Gourmet Beer and Food Matching Lunch.

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